Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Subhagavana:A wood in Ukkatthā.Once,when theBuddha was there,he visited theAvihā gods (D.ii.50) and,again,from there he visited Baka Brahmā,to whom he preached theBrahmanimantanika Sutta (M.i.326; but see S.i.142,where the Buddha is said to have been at Jetavana).

It was under a sāla tree in Subhagavana that theMūlapariyāya Sutta was preached (M.i.1; also the Jātakas,of the same name,J.ii.259).

The wood was so called because of its beauty.People often went there for pleasure,and,influenced by the romantic nature of the surroundings,would plan pleasant things,which would come to pass (MA.i.10).
