Nedunjcheliyan I (c. 270 BCE) (Tamil: நெடுஞ்செழியன்) was a Pandya king who is credited by the Sangam Age work Maduraikkanci with having won a battle against the northern aryan army. Hence he is been given with the title Aariya Padai kadantha Nedunjezhiya Pandiyan (A Pandyan King , who defeated the Aryan intrusion). Nedunjcheliyan I was also the Pandya king of the epic Silappatikaram who later died of a broken heart. His name is present in the mangulam inscriptions of 3rd century BCE. The dating of 180 CE of his reign is thus wrong and is misconstrued for Nendunjcezhiyan II.He was among the early pandyan rulers.
