Daitya King Sukesa was married to Gandharva princess, Manimaya and had three sons with her: Malyavantha, Sumali, and Mali. The three brothers performed a great penance and had boons from Bramha Deva. The Great Sculptor Architect of Daityas' namely Maya (Mayasur) built Swarna Lanka for the three. The 3 brothers settle in Lanka and started invading all the three Lokas and harassing people. Then Devaganas along with their King Indra went to Lord Siva seeking his help. Lord Siva directed them to Lord Vishnu and then Vishnu came for the rescue of all the three Lokas. He killed Mali with his Sudarashana Chakra. Afraid of Vishnu, Sumali and Malyavanth left Lanka and ran to Pathala Lok. Then Kubera, the son of Vishwavasu took the control of Lanka and started living there.
Sumali/Sumalaya married to Kethu Mathi and gave birth to a daughter Kaikasi and also had some sons. The escaped Sumali wished her daughter Kaikasi to marry most powerful being in the world so as to produce and exceptional heir who can then re-establish the Rakshasa Kingdom in the 3 lokas. She searched all over the world and selected the great sage and Kubera's father Vishwavasu to marry. Vishwavasu is a son of Pulastya Bramha, who is one of the ten Prajapathis called Bramha-Manas Putras.
Hiding her identity Kaikasi married Vishwavasu and one fine day asked him about having sons. Vishwavasu warned her that the time she asked about having sons is evening time (asur sandhya) and it is not the right time. If at all anybody born on that time they would be Rakhas. But she insisted him and first gave birth to 2 sons – Dasa Kanta and Kumbha Karna; later at night she gave birth to Vibheeshana. Thus there is a vast difference in the first 2 and later.
Ravana was thus a Daitya Bramhana. He is a great devotee of Lord Siva and mastered in 4 Vedas and 6 Upanishads. Thus he is also symbolically said Dasagreeva. Once Kaikasi asked Ravana about having a world's greatest Siva linga at Lanka for her daily puja. Arrogant Ravana, tried to take Kailasa to Lanka. He lifted Kailasa on his shoulders. Maa Parvathi asked Lord Siva about the leaning of Kailasa. Lord Siva told her that it was Ravana's act and he simply pressed Kailasa with his thumb. With that Ravana strucked between Kailasa Parvatha and Pridhvi and experienced intolerable pain and shouted very hilariously. This sort of sound is described in Sanskrit as Ravanahh. Thus he got the name.
Ravana took his Lanka from Kubera, and Kubera left to Gandhamadhana Parvatha with his Yaksha and Kinnera Ganas.
Now (2 Yugas Later)
Lemoria: As per the existing geographies, Ravana's lanka was in Atlantic Ocean west to North America. The island/lanka was called "Lemoria" which was submerged into Atlantic after few years of Ravana's era.
Mayan Race & Civilisation: As earlier said, the Swarna Lanka was built for Sumali by Mayasur. Maya ruled the land around Mexico in North America. That is the reason why we heard about the race and civilisation called "Maaya" in North America. Even this is also the reason for Mexicans even now celebrating RamSita festival.
More interestingly, if you observe the names of Ravana's grandfathers:
Sumali/Sumalaya: In Africa, right now we have a nation called "Somalia" whose name was derived from the name of Sumali/Sumalaya. Observe the physical characteristics of humans in these countries: Black, above 6 foot, very strong physic etc. Apart from this we have very dangerous Pirates there as of now. Also see the conditions in these countries.
Mali: Now we have "Mali", an African nation.
About Sri Lanka – It is treated as actual Ravana's lanka in contemporary scenario. But it might not be as per the above research. Also Ravana's lanka was a Swarna Lanka which was ruled by Vibheeshana after Ravana's era. Then why it is treated as Ravana's lanka?
The reason could be Ravana placed Sita in this Island, thus it got the name like Sita Lanka which later became Sri Lanka. Sita is treated as ansh of Goddess Lakshmi who is also referred as "Sri". Thus Sita Lanka might have become Sri Lanka.
Andaman: The reason behind this Island's name is that Lord Hanuman took some rest over this Island while travelling to Sita Lanka. The Bushman in this Island worship Hanuman as their god thus it was called Handaman which later became Andaman.
Syria and Around: After the Ravan'asura's era, the left out from the race "Asura" travelled towards Middle East and then to East. Many of them settled in Middle East and formed "Asiria" which now comprises Syria and the Middle East countries. The race thus travelled to East formed Indus/Sindhu valley civilisation. That is the reason why historians found the same script in Mayan race and Mexico what we found in Sindhu civilisation.
