It was mentioned in Sanskrit literature from the earliest sources onwards.[citation needed] Sage Durvasa meditated under the Kalpavriksha.

The kalpavriksha originated during the Samudra manthan or "churning of the ocean of milk" along with the kamadhenu, the divine cow providing for all needs. The king of the gods, Indra returned with this tree to his paradise.
A kalpavriksha is mentioned in the Sanskrit work Mānāsara as a royal emblem. In Hemādri's work Caturvargacīntama, the kalpavriksha is said to be a tree of gold and precious stones.
