A chieftain, uncle of Pandukābhaya and father of Suvannapāli. He had been appointed chieftain of the district of Girikanda by Panduvāsudeva, and refused to recognise Pandukābhaya's claim to the throne (Mhv.x.29f). When Suvannapāli was carried away by Pandu-kābhaya, her father sent his five sons to rescue her, but they were all slain by Canda, son of Pandula (Mhv.x.41f). When Pandukābhaya became king he restored the province of Girikanda to his uncle, putting him in charge of it (Mhv.x.82).
