Indravarman II (Khmer: ឥន្ទ្រវរ្ម័នទី២) was son of Jayavarman VII.

We know very little about the reign of Indravarman II, possibly because his successor, Jayavarman VIII, may have destroyed historical records about him.  The only inscription which directly mention him reports that he died in 1243.

He was a Buddhist, like his father, and is credited with having enlarged (or completed) some of Jayavarman VII's monuments.  During his peaceful reign, Angkor lost control of Champa and the newborn Sukhothai Kingdom under Indraditya took possession of some western territories.

David P. Chandler hypothesised that Indravarman II was possibly the Leper King of Khmer legends.
