Khottiga (967–972 CE), who bore the title Nityavarsha,[1] was a ruler of the Rashtrakuta Empire. During this period the Rashtrakutas started to decline. The Paramara King Siyaka II plundered Manyakheta and Khottiga died fighting them. This information is available from the Jain work Mahapurana written by Pushpadanta. He was succeeded by Karka II who ruled only for a few months.
