Guhasīva

King of Kāliṅga. At first he did not pay honour to the Tooth-relic of the Buddha which was in his capital, but later, having seen a miracle, he became a Buddhist and paid the relic all homage.

Later, he sent the relic to Sri Lanka, through his daughter Hemamālā and her husband Dantakumāra. The whole story is given in the Dāṭhāvaṃsa (chap.iv.ff).
