Kadambavana (कदम्बवन) refers to a “Kadamba forest”, according to the Kulakaulinīmata 5.88-99.—Accordingly, “The goddess (Tripurabhairavī) is red like vermillion and the Bandhūka flower. [...] One should meditate constantly on the Goddess who, in this form, is in the middle of a Kadamba forest [i.e., kadambavana-madhyagā] in the midst of the eight (Mothers) Brahmī and the rest (each in their) own (place). A thousand petalled lotus is (above her) on the upper path. (It) rains down with a great current (of nectar) and is (red) like burning lac. [...]”.
