Kalinga King Nissanka Malla brought the tooth relic of Buddha to Sri Lanka and became the king. Nissanka Malla was the son of Kalinga king Jaya Gopa and Parvati devi. Probably, Simhapura of Srikakulam or Jajpur was their capital. Nissanka Malla claimed that King Vijaya indeed belonged to his capital Simhapura and himself was the descendant of him. He built Dambulla Vihara. Interestingly, Nissanka Malla says in his Anuradhapura inscription that he bestowed Kambodis (Cambodians) gold, cloths etc. and commanded them not to kill birds (EZ, vol II, pp. 70-83).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
