a.Adam عليه السلام descended in India, on a mountain called Baudh, on the island of Sri Lanka (Serendid/Ceylon)
b.Ibn Batutah recorded in his journal, Adam عليه السلام landed on Sri Langka
c.Adam عليهه السلام was buried in the mountain of Abu Qubais
d.Buried on Mount Baudh
e.After the flood, Noah عليه السلام had to bury him for a second time in Jerusalem

Of the various narrations on the topic, Dr Shawqi Abu Khalil deem certain narrations of  At-Tabari, Ibn Al-Athir, and Al-Ya’qubi to be the strongest. They indicate that, after Allah جلّ جلا له  forgave  Adam  عليه السلام, Jibreel  عليه السلام taught him the rites of Hajj; those narrations also indicate that it was at the foot of Mount Abu Qubais that Adam   عليه السلام died and was subsequently buried.
