Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Gandhakuti:The name given to the special apartment occupied by the Buddha at the Jetavana monastery (J.i.92).The building,of which the Gandhakuti formed a part,was evidently called the Gandhakuti-parivena,and there the Buddha would assemble the monks and address them (E.g.,J.i.501; iii.67).The site,on which stands the bed of the Buddha in the Gandhakuti,is the same for every Buddha,and is one of the unalterable sites – avijahitatthānāni (BuA.247).

The name Gandhakuti seems to have been used later in reference also to other residences of the Buddha.Thus,we are told (AA.i.226; see C.S.B.,Pl.5B) that Visākhā built a Gandhakuti for the Buddha in the Pubbārāma with the money she obtained by the sale of her Mahālatāpasādhana.For further details see Buddha.
