The tree of this continent is a giant Kadamba tree. The human inhabitants of this continent do not live in houses but sleep on the ground.

Aparagodaniya
瞿耶尼牛貨洲西牛貨洲 (Skt; Jpn Kuyani, Goke-shu, or Sai-goke-shu)

Also known as Godaniya. One of the four continents surrounding Mount Sumeru, according to the ancient Indian worldview. The Sanskrit apara means west. The Dharma Analysis Treasury indicates that it is a continent located to the west of Mount Sumeru, in the sea between the outermost of the seven concentric gold mountain ranges and the iron mountain range that constitutes the outermost borders of the world. This iron mountain range is known as the Iron Encircling Mountains. The Dharma Analysis Treasury describes Aparagodaniya as circular, 2,500 yojanas in diameter, while the Long Agama Sutra describes it as semicircular.
