A South Indian tribe. Their ruler is described in the Chronicles simply as the Vallabha. Mānavamma once joined Narasīha against the Vallabha king and defeated him (Cv.xlvii.15ff). On another occasion, the Vallabha king sent a force to subdue Nāgadīpa in the reign of Mahinda IV. The latter sent an army under the general Sena, defeated the Vallabhas and made a friendly treaty with them. Cv.liv.12ff.
