Paramesvaravarman II (died 731) was a Pallava king who ruled from 728 to 731. He was killed by the Chalukya king Vikramaditya II.

Reign[edit]

Paramesvaravarman succeeded his father Narasimhavarman II in 728 and ruled till 731. During his reign, Kanchi was invaded by the Chalukyas and Paramesvaravarman had to surrender and accept humiliating conditions. To avenge this humiliation, Paramesvaravarman attacked the Chalukya kingdom but was defeated and killed. Paramesvaravarman is remembered for the construction of the Vaikunta Perumal Temple in Kanchipuram. Following Paramesvaravarman's death in 731, the Simhavishnu line of Pallavas became extinct.
