Śivaśri (r. 158-165 CE) or Śivaśri Śātakarṇi is a king from the Sātavāhana dynasty of ancient India. The Sātavāhana lineage (known as Andhra in the Purāṇas) once ruled much of the Deccan region and several of the Ajantā caves at West-Khandesh (West-Khaṇḍeśa, modern Jalgaon) were carved in the 3rd century BCE when the region was ruled by kings (e.g., Śivaśri) and descendants of the Sātavāhana kings. Śivaśri was preceded by Pulumāvi III (Vaśiṣṭhiputra) and succeeded by Śivaskanda Śātakarṇi.
