King of Sri Lanka (1604‑35 A.D.). He was the cousin and successor of Vimaladhammasūriya I and had his capital at Sirivaḍḍhanapura (Kandy). Because the Paraṅgī (Portuguese) did much damage to Buddhism, he removed the Tooth Relic to Pañcasata. He had three sons: Kumārasīha, Vijayapāla, and the best known of all, Rājasīha (afterwards Rājasīha II). He divided the country among his sons seven years before his death. Cv.xcv.1 ﬀ.
