Parakramabahu I, the throne passed to Nissanka Malla of the Kalinga dynasty, who
in his inscriptions vindicates the right of his dynasty to the throne of Lanka
claiming descent from Vijaya, the first king. He ruled for nine years.
coins bear the curious legend Sri
Kale(m)ga La(m)keja in the Nagari script – perhaps a version of his
Sinhala title Kalingu Lakindu, Kalinga
monarch of Lanka, used by this king in his Hatadage
slab inscription. Along with the Parakramabahu I and Codaganga, the
Nissankamalla massa is of the highest rarity among Ceylon coins.
