Maharaja Shri Immadi Chikka Krishnaraja Wadiyar II (Kannada: ಇಮ್ಮಡಿ ಕೃಷ್ಣರಾಜ ಒಡೆಯರ್, – 25 April 1766[2]), was also known popularly as Immadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar II. He was the titular ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore from 1734 to 1766.


8 October 1731, He was adopted by Maharani Devajammani (a Queen of Krishnaraja Wodeyar I) under the title of Chikka Krishnaraja Wodeyar.

He was crowned at Mysore, 15 June 1735. Reigned under the control of Mahisura Delavoi Devarajaiya Urs, Delavoi 1724–1732 and 1733–1746.

His reign was dominated by his Dalwai(Delavoi)s (a role similar to seneschal or commander-in-chief), including Devarajaiya Urs (Devaraja Girachuri), who also served as regent (1724–1732 and 1733–1746) until Krishna attained majority, and Hyder Ali, who came to be considered the de facto ruler of Mysore (Sarvadhikari) from 1761 until his death in 1782.

25 April 1766, Krishna Raja Wadiyar II died at Seringapatam.
