An affix riddle:

My prefix is on a roll.
My infix is not on board.
My suffix isn't so sure.

My prefix, infix, and suffix all rhyme, but you'll have to know why.

Where am I?

Hint (modified):

You can find me on a globe.

Hint 2:

I suppose this hint might unlock something central to where I am.

1 Answer 1


Is the answer:

Jambu Swami Digamber


Jam is found on a roll, you swam if you were not "on board", and "amber" as in an amber light can mean unsure if you dating. If you remove "er" from amber you are left with "amb", which rhymes with the other two.

How I found this answer:

Guessed jam and swam, put "jamA*swamA*" in nutrimatic to receive Jambuswami, and then checked on Google and Google Maps for place names containing Jambuswami or Jambu Swami
