Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

The years A.D. 725-26 were fateful for India. In A.D. 726 Junayad was succeeded by Tamim as the governor of Sindh. Under his direction, an Arab army tried to enter the Deccan between A.D. 731 and A.D. 738.1 It was, however, defeated by the Chalukya prince Pulakeshi Avanijanashraya at Navsari. The Arab army, which had entered Saurashtra, penetrated up to Ujjain but was flung back by Nagabhata, the first king of the Pratihara dynasty. Nagabhata came from Gurjara or Gurjaradesha; that area is now partly included in Jaipur and partly in Mewar; and that is how Nagabhata's successors came to be styled Gurjareshvaras.

1 Elliot, I. 442.
