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.
