Jāmbūnadamaya (जाम्बूनदमय) refers to “(fashioned) of golden color”, according to the Rāmāyaṇa verse 5.3.8-13. Accordingly:—“[...] Seeing the city [viz., Laṅkā] everywhere Hanuma (Hanumān) became surprised at heart. Thereafter Hanuma the monkey, became happy seeing the doors (dvāra) which were of golden color (jāmbūnadamaya), with platforms of cat’s eye gems, inlaid with diamonds, crystals and pearls, embellished with floors of gems, [...], equalling the city of Vasvaukasārā, as though flying towards the sky. Seeing that city of Rāvaṇa, which was best among cities, a wealthy city, a beautiful and auspicious city, that powerful Hanuma thought thus”.
