Hiddavulla Copper Plate Grant
Hiddavulla Copper Plate Grant (Sinhala: හයවන පරාක්‍රමබාහු රජුගේ හිද්දවුල්ල තඹ සන්නස) is a copper plate grant issued during the reign of King Parakramabahu VI (1412-1467 A.D.) of Kotte. It is presently on the display at the National Museum of Kandy.

The record has been engraved on an obround-shaped copper plate. It has thirteen lines of writing written in Sinhalese language and scripts of the 15th century A.D. Figures of the sun, a crow, a dog and the moon are found engraved from top to bottom at the right edge of the plate while there are the figures of the sun and moon with some equipment (hammer, pliers etc.) along the left edge.

The record mentions certain grants made to a person named Hiddavulle Rathna Mudali Davunda Achari in the 40th regnal year of King Parakramabahu VI (1412-1467 A.D.).
