Kīrtichandomālā (कीर्तिछन्दोमाला) or Vanamālīkīrticchandomālā is the name of a work on metrics ascribed to Rāmanārāyaṇa (19th century): the son of king Sucetarāma and disciple of Rāmasiṃha, Sadāsukha and Harinātha. In the Kīrtichandomālā, Rāmanārāyaṇa defines and illustrates 37 classical metres in 47 verses and at the same time sings the glory of Lord Krṣṇa. He says: “after praising the gurus with utmost devotion, to please Lord Viṣṇu, to keep pure his speech, he is composing the garland of fames, (which is bound with metres) of Vanamāli”.
