v.l. Kuvaṇṇā.– A yakkha maiden, whom Vijaya married on his arrival in Sri Lanka. With her assistance he killed the yakkhas at their feast in Sirīsivatthu. Later Vijaya discarded her in favour of a royal maiden from Madhurā, and she left, with her two children Jīvahattha and Dipellā, for Laṅkāpura, where she was slain as a spy. Her children fled to Malaya and their descendants became the Pulindas (Mhv.vii.9‑68).
Kuvaṇṇā had as companion a slave called Sisapātī (Sīsapātikā). MT.255.
