Mattamātaṅgalīlākara (मत्तमातङ्गलीलाकर) is the name of a daṇḍaka type of Sanskrit metre according to Gaṅgādāsa (16th century) in his Chandomañjarī. Accordingly, the metre which has above 26 letters in its each pāda is called as daṇḍaka. It is also considered as samavṛtta.
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.
