While it is said in the Sutras that Manjushri resides in a different universe, Tibetans popularly believe he lives in the Hill of Five Peaks in the north west of China called Wutai Shan.

 

There is a legend of his visit to Nepal where he built a Vihara for his followers and disciples, which to this day is still called Manju Pattana. He is believed to have used the sword he normally carries to make way for a river flowing through Kathmandu, which still has sword like cuts on its banks.
