    Janakiharan was written in Sri Lanka in the 7th century. According to Dr. M.D. Raghavan, Ethnologist Emeritus of the National Museum of Ceylon and eminent scholar, “Ceylon is full of reminiscences with unmistakable link scenes and stories with Ravana and his days such as Ravan Ella cave, Ravana’s waterfall etc…”

    Two versions of Ramayana are present in Nepal. One is written by Mahakabhi Siddhidas Mahaju in Nepal Bhasa. The other one is written by Aadikavi Bhanubhakta Acharya. The Nepal Bhasa version by Siddhidas Mahaju marks a great point in the renaissance of Nepal Bhasa whereas the one of Bhanubhakta Acharya is the first epic of Nepali. The Nepali authors composed Sundarananda Ramayana and Adarsha Raghava in the 19th century
