Jayavarman IX (Khmer: ជ័យវរ្ម័នទី៩), also known as Jayavarmadiparamesvara, was like his father Indravarman IV a convinced Shaivite.

According to the Cambodian Royal Chronicle, which named him "Sihanouk," he was assassinated in 1336 by the head of the royal gardens Neay Trasac Paem Chay, who married his daughter and took his place on the throne.  This narrative is probably legendary (we find a very similar one in Burmese history: see Nyaung-U Sawrahan).

Jayavarman IX is the last king mentioned by inscriptions on the monuments, the last Sanskrit inscriptions of Cambodia.
