Venīmatī (वेनीमती) is the wife of Ratnamauli, a faithful commander of Śikhaṇḍatilaka (king of Indīvara), according to the sixth Ucchvāsa of the Udayasundarīkathā. Their daughter is Tārāvalī, who became a close friend of Udayasundarī. Tārāvalī tells their story to king Malayavāhana while staying in the hermitage of Viśvabhūti.

The Udayasundarīkathā is a Sanskrit epic tale written by Soḍḍhala in the early 11th century, revolving around the Nāga princess Udayasundarī and Malayavāhana (king of Pratiṣṭhāna).
