Nirvāṇanagara (निर्वाणनगर) refers to the “city of Nirvāṇa”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 32.—Accordingly, “the thirty-seven auxiliaries (bodhipākṣika) are the path (mārga) leading to nirvāṇa. When one follows this path, one reaches the city of Nirvāṇa (nirvāṇagara [Nirvāṇanagara?]). The city of Nirvāṇa has three gates (dvāra), emptiness (śūnyatā), signlessness (ānimitta) and wishlessness (apraṇihita)”.
