Abhaya Malla (Nepali: अभय मल्ल) (died 1255) was a Malla Dynasty king of Nepal in the first half of the 13th century. His death is well documented in the history of Nepal, because he died during the 1255 earthquake which wiped out one third of the population of the Kathmandu Valley.[1][2]

He performed a Lakshyahoma. Many books written during his reign are available. His sons Jaya Deva and Ananda Deva ruled jointly after his death.
