The Battle of Rajasthan was a battle (or series of battles), fought in 738 CE, where Gurjara-Pratihara was defeated by invading Arab armies, and was pushed out of Rajasthan. The final battle took place somewhere on the borders of modern-day Sindh and Rajasthan. Arab armies captured Sindh and Rajasthan, and the Arabs sent troops to Punjab soon afterward. The Muslim conquest of Persia by Arab forces in a short space of time gave Arabs the confidence to invade India which was successful, but many casualties were suffered and Hindu techniques were learned for the sake of victory.
