Sahu further asserts that, according to Balmiki, the ancient sage and narrator, Lanka is close to the Mahendra Giri hill which is in the Gajapati district of Odisha. Other places mentioned in the epic are Subhlanka, which could be Subhalgiri in Odisha, and Bilanka, which could be Binika near Sonepur. Also in that area, Hanuman is disrespected and they burnt his effigy as a mark of contempt. This is contrary to the traditions elsewhere in the country. Historians further argue that while in Sri Lanka there is no folk tale or legend about the epic events, the Binjhal tribe in Sambhalpur have several such tales about the mythic Lanka.
Women of the Orang tribe sing folk songs about Ravana. These tribesmen also perform Meghnad Yatra annually and Bonda girls in the Koraput district of Orissa have their heads clean, claiming that they have been cursed by Sita. Gandhamardan Hills or Gandhamardan parbat is a hill located in between Balangir and Bargarh district of Odisha.

It is associated with mythological stories from the Ramayana as Mahendra Parvata mountain. In the P uranas and Mahabharta that Parshurama practiced penance for a long time on the Mahendra mountain. The mountain Mahendragiri is situated in Gajapati district,Odisha.
Next, we have Koshal region in Odisha. This area had been identified as the home of Koshalya or the home of maternal grandfather of Rama. Meanwhile, in Odisha, we have a state flower whose botanical name is Saraca asoca. In hindi we call it as Ashoka flower but in Odisha, we call it Sita-Ashoka??? As we already stated that this is merely a concept, which is still in premature stage.
Researches are going on in this and we all know someday we will get to know something new. But can it be ignored???
