Viśākhā, also referred to as Migara's mother (Migāramāta), was one of the chief female lay disciples of the Buddha. She became a stream-enterer (sotapanna) and died at the age of 120.

Viśākhā erected a monastery for the Buddha known as "Migāramātupāsāda" (Pali for "Migara's mother's palace"), near Savatthi.
