Viśākhāprāsāda (विशाखाप्रासाद) is the name of a Buddhist temple, as mentioned in the Udānasutta, according to a note attached to the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 51.—Thus the Buddha was at Śrāvastī, at the Viśākhāprāsāda, and was walking in the shade. Suddenly he uttered this exclamation (udānam udānayati sma): “That there is no ‘me’ (ātman), that there is no ‘mine’ (ātmiya), how wonderful (sādhu)!”.
