Indravarman V, Harideva, or Jaya Simhavarman, was a king of Champa whose reign began in 1257 when he assassinated his uncle Jaya Indravarman VI, but waited until 1266 for his coronation.[1]: 182, 192  Declining to submit himself in person to the Mongol Khan, Kublai Khan, he nevertheless "subjected himself to this humiliation" of the Mongol commanders Sogetu and Liu Chong dividing his kingdom into administrative units. His son, Chế Mân, "could not resign himself."[2]: 81–82 [3]

Sogetu launched an invasion in 1282, forcing Indravarman and Harijit to flee to the mountains. Refusing to present himself in court and make an act of vassalage, he subjected the Mongols to suffer "heat, illness, and a lack of supplies." Desertions amongst the Mongols also took their toll. Finally, after Sogetu's death in 1285, "Champa found itself delivered of the Mongols."[2]: 83–86 

Indravarman did send an ambassador to Kublai on 6 Oct. 1285, and probably died soon afterwards.[1]: 193
