Kavikarṇapūra (कविकर्णपूर) (C. 16th century), an exponent on Sanskrit metrics belongs to Kāmarūpa (modern Assam). He was a celebrated poet as well as a learned scholar in the court of Malladeva, the then king of Assam. His interpretations of two new gaṇas in Sanskrit metrics are noteworthy. He has thrown new lights on the history of Sanskrit Prosody through his work Vṛttamālā. He mentions about his authorship, his patron Malladeva at the end of the work. He praises Rādhā and Mādhava in the invocatory verse of his work, for which it can be said that he is a staunch follower of Vaiṣṇava philosophy.
Chandas (छन्दस्) refers to Sanskrit prosody and represents one of the six Vedangas (auxiliary disciplines belonging to the study of the Vedas). The science of prosody (chandas-shastra) focusses on the study of the poetic meters such as the commonly known twenty-six metres mentioned by Pingalas.
