1) Chandoratnāvalī (छन्दोरत्नावली) is the name of a work ascribed to Amaracandra (C. 1225-1300 C.E.): a Jain author of Śvetāmbara sect and disciple of Jinadatta Sūri (author of Vivekavilāsa). Most of his works (eg., the Chando-ratnāvalī) are published in Kāvyamālā Series, Gaekward Oriental Series and Kashi Sanskrit Series. Also see the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” I. pp. 332-33.

He also pays his tributes to Piṅgala and says that the composition is composed after collecting the pearls of metres from the ocean of Śāstras.
