The relationship of Kota to Beta whom he succeeded on the throne is not apparent. His earliest inscription is from Kelpur, dated A.D. 1148 mentioning him as mahamandalesvara Kebaraja. None of his records issued after that date are available. But the upper limit of his reign may be fixed as A.D. 1156, the earliest date for his son and successor Bhima. Keta seems to have had a peaceful and eventless reign, for by his time the Chola suzerainty was completely restored in Vengi and the local kingdom had no trouble from the Chalukyat.
