Caṇḍavikrama (चण्डविक्रम) is the name of a king, according to the “story of the golden city”, according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 26. Accordingly, “there is a king of the name of Caṇḍavikrama, lord of the southern region. I am his daughter, auspicious sir, a maiden named Vindurekhā. But a wicked Daitya, with flaming eyes, carried me off by treachery from my father’s house to-day and brought me here”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Caṇḍavikrama, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
