Jetavana Temple paintings, Shravasti, Uttar Pradesh, India. Unknown artist of ancient origin.

Jetavana was the place where the Buddha gave the majority of his teachings and discourses, having stayed at Jetavana more than in any other monastery. This monastery was donated by the Buddha's lay patron Suddata. A merchant of Shravasti, he is said to have been one of the wealthiest men in the kingdom of Kosala. Since he often made donations to the poor and friendless, he was also called Anāthapindada (Supplier of the Needy). 

The Third Buddhist Council for compiling the Buddha’s teachings was held at the Mauryan capital, Pātaliputra about two hundred years after Shakyamuni's death under the patronage of King Ashoka. (268–232 BCE)
