According to the epic Ramayana, Shravasti turned into a brand new metropolis created for Lava (the son of King Rama). Rama divided his Kosala kingdom into elements and gave Shravasti to his son Lava and Kushavati to any other son Kusha, another metropolis in Kosala. consistent with the Mahabharata, the beginning of Shravasti is related to the mythical king Shravasta. consistent with Buddhist culture then again, the metropolis changed into called Savatthi because the sage Savattha lived there. another way of life says the call of Shravasti comes from the phrase "Sabbam atthi" (which means "all things", or the entirety). The Angulimala's Stupa Shravasti is one of the major monuments in Shravasti.
