When Agasthya Rishi visited Mahabali, then the King MahaBali gifted Sri Lanka to him. Agasthya ji is also called Vaman Avtar of Vishnu.

So the question is did he got this prize land before Visheshrava (Father of Ravan) or Pulatsya Rishi (Grand Father of Ravan).

  • Vaman is not name it means Dwarf. During Mahabali times, only one super genius Sage existed named Agasthya. He hid his name from Mahabali and challenged all his experts vedic pundits.. Also, Agastya name is mentioned in Valmiki Ramayan. Agasthya went to south and created many language and scripts.. Vaishnav consider him as Vishu (Vaman) and Shaivites consider him as partly Avtar or Shiv. It is mouth to mouth folklore.
