Hinduism - Where Is Lanka In The Context Of Hindu Mythology?

 

Lanka is the land of the demon-king Ravana in the Ramayana, the first of the two major Indian epics.

Although the epic's descriptions should be regarded as mythological and narrative tales than than a geographical survey, Lanka is occasionally connected with the present island of Sri Lanka, and southern Indian places such as Rameshvaram have been linked to events in the Ramayana.

Vishvakarma, the heavenly architect, had created Lanka for Kubera, a lesser god, but Kubera had been deposed by Ravana and his siblings.
