Lankan legacy in a small Tamil Nadu town



Vikrama Raja Singhan was the last of the Tamil kings of Kandy. The British, who felt threatened by his growing popularity with his subjects, waged war with him on a slim pretext. He managed to escape and return to Kandy.

There was a brief period of truce before conflict broke out again between the British and the king. He was defeated, forced out of his hiding place and deported to Vellore, 150 km from Madras where he was imprisoned for 17 and died a losers death.
