|Mahāvamsa：The great Chronicle of Ceylon．
The first part of the work - i．e．，to the time of KingMahāsena - is attributed to Mahānāma Thera （MT．687）．
The continuation of the Chronicle is called the Cūlavamsa．The first portion of the Cūlavamsa - i．e．，from Mahāsena to the reign of Parakkamabāhu II．- is traditionally ascribed to a thera named Dhammarakkhita （Cv．Trs．ii．155，n．3）．
The next section - i．e．，to the time of Kittisiri Rājasīha - was written by Tibbatuvāve Thera，Mahānāyaka of Pupphārāma，at the invitation of the king，who obtained for him copies of the Chronicle from Siam （Cv．xcix．78f； Cv．Trs．ii．263，n．1）．From there it was continued till the time of the British occupation （1815 A．C．） by Hikkaduve Sumangala Thera （P．L．C．310）．
There is a Commentary on the Mahāvamsa called the Vamsatthappakāsinī （q．v．）．
