Kadambanam vane vasati sa
She lives in the forest of Kadamba trees
The palace of Cintamani is surrounded by a gallery formed of gems (manimandapa), around which is the grove of kadamba trees, It is said in the Bhairavayamala, "the abode of bindu os the ocean of nectar, the five yonis, the five sakti angles of the SriChakra are the divine trees, there is the grove of nipa trees, within that is the gallery of gems, within which in turn is the palace of cintamani and so on."
In the puranas there is also a description which says,"there are Kadamba trees seven yojanas in height in the spaces between the walls of gold and silver."
