Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Ulāra:The daughter of a family in Rājagaha,which waited upon Mahā Moggallāna; was very generous and always gave away in alms the half of anything which she possessed.She was given in marriage to the son of a family of unbelievers.One day,seeing Moggallāna begging for alms,she invited him and gave him some cakes which had been put away by her mother-in-law.When the latter heard of it she was greatly enraged,and struck the girl with a pestle.

The girl died and was born in Tāvatimsa,her palace being called the Ulāravimāna.Later,Moggallāna visited her there (Vv.p.24; VvA.120).
