Title Malays of Sri Lanka
Author Alvin Sallay
About the Book From a language in which many Sinhala terms have originated to relished food including the likes of Nasi Goreng or Pittu, the minuscule Malay community of Sri Lanka has maintained its unique niche in the social fabric of the country for centuries, standing side by side with their brothers and sisters of other communities.

Now the life and times of the Malays, whose origins come from the island of Java in Indonesia, are chronicled in a delightful 224-page coffee table book titled ‘Malays of Sri Lanka’ written by Alvin Sallay, a veteran journalist who has worked in Sri Lanka and Hong Kong.

The book delves into history, going back in time to 1214 and how Kalinga Magha, a prince apparently from India (with some saying he was a Malay monarch), along with an army of 24,000 personnel including Malay soldiers captured Raja Rata and established his seat of power at Polonnaruwa
