Kingdom of Ravana, today’s Sri Lanka.

How Lanka came into being – Vayu and Vasuki got into a quarrel about who is the stronger. Vasuki twined himself around mount Meru so tightly that even Vayu didn’t fit in between. Vayu turned into a cyclone, the mountain wobbled, but Vasuki remained unimpressed. Vishnu stopped them both. When Vasuki loosend herself from the mountain, a piece broke off. Vayu took it and placed it near the southeast coast of India.
