Seṅkhandasela-Sirivaḍḍhanapura

The ancient name of modern Kandy, in Sri Lanka.

It first became the capital under King Vīravikkama (Cv.xcii.7), and tradition has it that it was founded on a site originally occupied by a hermit named Seṅkhanda.

It continued to be the capital of Sri Lanka until 1815 A.C., when the island was ceded to the British.
