Candamukha-Siva

Son of Iḷanāga and king of Sri Lanka (103‑112 A.C.) for eight years and seven months. His wife was Damiḷādevī. He was killed by his younger brother Yasalālaka-Tissa. Siva built a reservoir near Maṇikāragāma which he gave to the Issarasamaṇārāma (Dpv.xxi.44; Mhv.xxxv.46). When Ilanāga was taken captive by the Lambakaṇṇā, his queen sent the little Candamukha-Siva to the state elephant to be killed by him, but the elephant picked him up and brought about Iḷanāga’s release. Ibid., vs.20 ff
