Coranāga

King of Sri Lanka (3 B.C.– 9 A.C.). He was the son of Vaṭṭagāmaṇi and his name was Mahānāga (Mhv.xxxiii.45). During the reign of Mahācūli Mahātissa he was a rebel and came to the throne after Mahācūli’s death. He destroyed eighteen vihāras which had refused to shelter him as a rebel. He was poisoned by his queen Anulā (Mhv.xxxiv.11 ff). It is said (MA.ii.920; DA.ii.433; AA.ii.532) that after death he was born in the Lokantarikaniraya with a body three quarters of a league in height.
