It is clear that the pilgrims came with a knowledge of the legends and of all the miracles, and for them it was only a question of identifying the localities. They appear to have seen all they wished to see, including the places where the youthful Bodhisatta threw the elephant over the city moat, and where he shot an arrow thirty li (ten miles). The Kapilavatthu pointed out to Fa Hien was a place where " no king nor people are to be found ; it is just like a wilderness, except for priests and some tens of families Hiuen Tsiang three centuries later found it deserted, and the villages few and waste. Some forty miles further east the pilgrims found in the country of the Mallas the city of Ramagama, and still further on Kusinara, where Buddha passed away. Both places are now unknown.
