  • Candamukha-Siva

Son of Ilanāga and king of Ceylon (103-112 A.C.) for eight years and seven months. His wife was Damilādevī. He was killed by his younger brother Yasalālaka-Tissa.

Siva built a tank near Manikāragāma which he gave to the Issarasamanārāma (Dpv.xxi.44; Mhv.xxxv.46). When Ilanāga was taken captive by the Lambakannas, his queen sent the little Canda-mukhasiva to the state elephant to be killed by him, but the elephant picked him up and brought about Ilanāga's release. Ibid., vs.20ff
