Kanirajānu Tissa

King of Sri Lanka (A.D.89‑92). He slew his elder brother Āmaṇḍagāmaṇī-Abhaya and occupied the throne. He once gave judgment in a lawsuit concerning the uposatha-house in the Cetiyagiri-vihāra, and sixty monks who were found guilty of treason against him were captured by his orders and flung into a cave called Kanira. Hence, probably, his name. Mhv.xxxv.9 ff; MT.640; Dpv.xx.38.
