Girikaṇḍasiva

A chieftain, uncle of Paṇḍukābhaya and father of Suvaṇṇapālī. He had been appointed chieftain of the district of Girikaṇḍa by Paṇḍuvāsudeva, and refused to recognise Paṇḍukābhaya’s claim to the throne (Mhv.x.29 f). When Suvaṇṇapāli was carried away by Paṇḍukābhaya, her father sent his five sons to rescue her, but they were all slain by Caṇḍa, son of Paṇḍula (Mhv.x.41 f). When Paṇḍukābhaya became king he restored the province of Girikaṇḍa to his uncle, putting him in charge of it (Mhv.x.82).
