There was a close affinity between Koliyas and Shakyas which was established by intermarriage. Between these two towns flowed a small river Rohini. On the bank of the Rohini or Rohita were gardens.

Emperor Ashoka wanted to open the eight Pagodas to make eighty-four thousand pagodas except the Ramgram. The dragon King appeared when Emperor Ashoka wanted to damage the Ramgram pagoda. Emperor Ashoka saw that the dragon King was paying worship and was offering to the pagoda. The dragon King said, "if you could do better offering than this, you could do damage this pagoda and nobody would stop you." Emperor Ashoka knew that no offering in the world would be like this and he could not do better than the Dragon King, so he went back to his country without damaging the pagoda.
