King of Sri Lanka (A.D. 133‑102). He was the nephew of King Āmaṇḍagāmaṇī Abhaya. Ānanda was succeeded by his son Cūḷābhaya and he by his younger sister Sīvalī. After Sīvalī had reigned for four months, Iḷanāga dethroned her and became king himself. In the first year of his reign he incurred the displeasure of the powerful Lambakaṇṇā and was deprived of his throne and taken captive. It is said that the king was rescued from prison by his state elephant and that he escaped to Rohaṇa. Three years later he gave battle to the Lambakaṇṇā at Kapallakkhaṇḍa and massacred most of them. He had the noses and toes of the rest cut off as punishment.
He was succeeded by his son Candamukha-
