The legend of the Emerald Buddha is related to several sources such as Jinakalamali, Amarakatabuddharupanidana, and in particular, Ratanabimbavamsa or The Chronicle of the Emerald Buddha written in Pali by Brahmarājaprajña in the 15th century (but the oldest extant manuscript dates only to 1788). The story is a mix of facts and fables with some variations of the story. According to the legend, the Emerald Buddha was created in 43 BCE by a sage named Nagasena in Pataliputra (today's Patna), India. Nagasena allegedly had the help of the Vishnu and Indra 500 years after Buddha attained Nibbana. He was said to have predicted. "This figure of the Buddha is assuredly going to give to religion the most brilliant importance in five lands, that is in Lankadvipa (Sri Lanka), Ramalakka, Dvaravati, Chieng Mai, and Lan Chang (Laos)."
