Inscription of Ceylon Volume IX – Sirimal Ranawella

PREFACE

This Volume, which we have titled ‘Inscriptions of Ceylon, Volume IX’, contains 25 Inscriptions and Sannas belonging to the period between 1469 A.D. to 1815 A.D.; it consists the texts and transcripts of all the records, except that of the Ahälapola Sannasa, and a translation attached to them. It thus comprises all the very important Sinhala Inscriptions belonging to the Kandyan period of Ceylon history, covering the regnal periods of Kings Sēnāsammata Vikramabāhu I (1469-1511), Jayavīra (1511-1552), Vimaladharmasūriya I (1591-1604), Rājasinha II (1635-1687), Kirtti Sri Rājasimha (1747-1782), Rājādhi Rājasimha and Śrī Vikrama Rājasimha (1798-1815). Most of the epigraphs included in this Volume, had previously been edited and published by Messrs. H. W. Codrington (CCS), Mr. H. C. P. Bell, the first Archaeological Commissioner, Professor S. Paranavitana, Dr. C. E. Godakumbura, Professor Lorna Devaraja, Mr. Somapala Jayavardhana (CAS), and Mr. Jayanta Uduwara, Assistant Commissioner (Epigraphy). However, the present author has reexamined those inscriptions and he was able to amend and improve the readings and interpretations of some of those records.
