Nivvuī (निव्वुई) is the daughter of King Pavvayaa of Mathurā (according to Āvasyakaniryukti with Haribhadra commentary), (= Siddhiā, daughter of King Jiasattu, according to Āvaśyakacūrṇi), as mentioned in the Vividhatīrthakalpa by Jinaprabhasūri (13th century A.D.): an ancient text devoted to various Jaina holy places (tīrthas).—Accordingly, “Nivvuī, daughter of King Pavvayaa of Mathurā asks that her husband be a valiant warrior: the honor must go to who will pierce eight discs, then touch a figurine in the eye. The only Suriṃdadatta, one of the twenty-three sons of King Iṃdadatta of the city Imdapura, achieves this feat”.
