Parakrama Bahu II (1236-1270):

Parakramabahu II of the Dambadeniya dynasty has been credited with reviving the Sinhala coinage that ceased under Magha, the Kalinga usurper Magha (A.D. 1215-1236), who reduced the nation to anarchy.

A significant even during the rule of Parakrama Bahu II was the only recorded South East Asian invasion of Ceylon, this was by Chandrabhanu of Tambralinga, a petty kingdom in the Malay Penninsula.
