1. Vimaladhammasūriya. King of Ceylon (1592 1604 A.C.). For his father, etc., see Cv. Trs.ii. 227, n.1. He succeeded Rājasīha I. and ruled in Sirivaddhanapura. He built a temple for the Tooth Relic in the capital* and, having sent an embassy to Rakkhanga, obtained a chapter of monks under Nandicakka to re establish the Order in Ceylon. He built the Ganthamba vihāra and held there a ceremony of ordination. He was succeeded by his cousin Senaratna, whom he persuaded to leave the Order that he might assume the duties of kingship (Cv.xciv.6ff).
* He seems to have made a special casket for the Relics, which Kittisirirājasīha later overlaid with gold; Cv.c.21; Cv. Trs.ii.276, n.1.

He was succeeded by his son, Narindasīha. Cv.xcvii.1ff.
