Avani Sulamani (IAST: Avani-śūlāmani; r. c. 620-645 CE) was an Indian king from the Pandyan dynasty. He ruled parts of the present-day Kerala
and Tamil Nadu. He bore the title Maravarman, which was also assumed by the later Pandyan rulers.[1] K. A. Nilakanta Sastri dates his reign to c. 620-645 CE; T. V. Sadasiva Pandarathar dates it to c. 600-625 CE.[2] Avani Sulamani was the son of Kadungon, who revived the Pandyan rule after the Kalabhra interregnum. Not much information is available about either of these kings. A Pandyan inscription praises Avani Sulamani using conventional phrases, claiming that he became the sole owner of the earth and married the goddess of prosperity.[3] He was succeeded by his son Jayantavarman.[4] References[edit]
