A mountain between Savatthi and Sunaparanta. The Buddha stopped there on his way to see Punna in Sunaparanta, and preached to the hermit who lived on the mountain, and who also was called Saccabaddha. At the end of the sermon the hermit became an arahant. From Saccabaddha the Buddha went to Sunaparanta. On the way back to Savatthi he stopped at the river Nammada, and from there he proceeded to Saccabaddha, where he left his footprint on the hard stone as clear as on kneaded clay. From Saccabaddha he returned to Jetavana. (SA.iii.17f.; MA.ii.1017f).
