There are many foreign accounts on Sri Lankan history. The “Record of the Western Regions” of Xuanzang’s having a considerable accounts on Sri Lanka. Although there are many other divergences and discrepancies with Mahāvamasa and the other chronicles, we are lucky to gain some controversial historical facts from the above text. This enables us to gain a better understanding of the religious milieu that formed or existed during this period. I have noticed interesting sequel to Divyāvadāna with this.
