When the child is a child, parents tie a leather band to the child over the stone when parents leave to work. From an early age, this child was so strong that when he was playing, he dragged the stone without trouble. One day as he was dragging the stone, it fell on another stone. While trying to fix it, the leather belt was broken. The mother screamed and ran to Nandimitra, fearing that a stone would fall on Nandimitra.

When he was about 12 years old, his father was so impatient with his bravery that he tied a clump of bamboo and left for a family business with his wife. After a while, they saw the bamboo bush dragging a man with him to his place. the son of his seemed to be was Nandimithra coming. By the time he was a teenager, the boy had become a young man of ascendancy. It was as strong as ten elephants.

He offered lampstands daily to the Thuparamaya, the sacred Bodhi tree. one day he came to know of one unfortunate incident.

So to catch criminals, he was hiding in a secret place. He watched over the passersby. One day he suddenly saw that the chief of Tamils and Tamils were deliberately committing these crimes. Furious, he himself killed the Tamil thugs and threw them away on the frontier. It was not visible to anyone. Authorities informed King Elara that there was a dramatic decrease in Tamils in the capital. King Elara said the culprits should be seized and brought before him.

Here the king gave a long sword to the nandimithra yodaya and called for it to be taken away. Soon he sharpened the sword. The king was very impressed with him.

Nandimitra though as if it were an act worthless to him,.with a strong body, he approached the elephant and grabbed the elephant’s tusks with his strong pair of hand and sat down. then the elephant stopped running.


King Dutugemunu had great respect for Nandimitra. People also shouted. to the elephant, this was a bit of a scuffle. The elephant started hating Nandimithra. The giant, elephant-clad elephant, a majestic non-carnivorous mammal, eats only fruit and fruit. It is normal, therefore, for the animals to have good and bad thoughts.

Prince Gemunu commenced a great war near the Vijithapura fortress against the Tamil Elara. There he broke his sword and broke the door of the Great Wall of Elara’s kingdom. Nandimitra saw the collapsing wall leaning against the elephant. suddenly he jumped and hold the wall of the eleven cubits and threw it to the other side.

King Dutugemunu who was victorious in the Tamil war conferred honor on the giant Nandimitra and presented him with gold, post, and a village in the northern part of Deduru Oya(a river). His great temple was built. He became so popular among the people that they were grateful to the Nandimithra Giant for building the temples of the people. Therefore, it was confirmed that Nandimithra was in King Dutugemunu’s army. The Brahmi inscription found at the top of Mount Omunugala is a good example.
