The Aryacakravarti dynasty (Tamil: ஆரியச் சக்கரவர்த்திகள் வம்சம்) were kings of the Jaffna Kingdom in Sri Lanka. The earliest Sri Lankan sources, between 1277 and 1283, mention a military leader of this name as a minister in the services of the Pandyan Empire; he raided the western Sri Lankan coast and took the politically significant relic of the Buddha’s tooth from the Sinhalese capital city of Yapahuwa. Political and military leaders of the same family name left a number of inscriptions in the modern-day Tamil Nadu state, with dates ranging from 1272 to 1305, during the late Pandyan Empire. According to contemporary native literature, the family also claimed lineage from the Tamil Brahmins of the prominent Hindu pilgrimage temple of Rameswaram in the modern Ramanathapuram District of In

  • A dinastia Aryacakravarti (em tâmil: ஆரியச் சக்கரவர்த்திகள் வம்சம்) governou o reino de Jaffna, no Sri Lanca. As fontes mais antigas cingalesas, entre 1277 e 1283, mencionam um líder militar do mesmo nome como ministro ao serviço do império de Pandya. Este terá atacado a costa ocidental da ilha do Ceilão e terá levado a relíquia (com um importante significado político) do dente de Buda da capital cingalesa de Yapahuwa. Líderes políticos e militares de igual apelido deixaram um vasto número de inscrições no moderno estado de Tamil Nadu, com datas que variam entre 1272 e 1305, durante o final do império de Pandya. De acordo com literatura contemporânea local, a família também clamava ter linhagem que vinha dos brahmins tâmiles do proeminente templo peregrinatório de Rameswaram (no moderno distrito de Ramanathapuram, na Índia). Esta dinastia governou o reino de Jaffna do século XIII ao século XVII, quando o último da dinastia, Cankili II, foi deposto pelos portugueses. (pt)
