Āriyacakkavatti

A Damiḷa general who came with a large army from the Paṇḍu kingdom and landed in Sri Lanka during the famine in the reign of Bhuvanekabāhu I. We are told that though he was no “Ariya” he was a dignitary of great power. He laid waste the kingdom and entered the capital Subhagiri. There he seized the Tooth Relic and the costly treasures which were kept with it and took them back to King Kulasekhara.

Cv.xc.43‑7. Kulasekhara reigned 1268‑1308. His general Āriyacakkavatti is mentioned in a South Indian Inscription (No.110, in the Annual Report of Epigraphy, Southern Circle, Madras, 1903).
