Sidambarampillai P. Vythilingam (2 April 1903 - ?) was a Ceylonese politician.
In 1952 Vythilingam was appointed, by Governor-General Viscount Soulbury on the recommendation of Prime Minister Dudley Senanayake, to the second parliament to represent the Ceylonese Indians. Vythilingam was a long-standing hill country Tamil loyalist of the United National Party. His appointment was strongly opposed by the Ceylon Indian Congress who believed that the Congress was more representative of the Indian community in Ceylon than a single individual.
