Another description of Kudan by him goes as: To the south of the city (capital city) 3 or 4 li (about 1.5 km) is a grove of the nyagrodha trees in which is a stupa built by Asoka raja. This is the place where Sakya Tathagata, having returned to his country after his enlightenment, met his father and preached the law
