They were living in the region around the five mouths of the River. Ganga where it meets the sea. The kings possessed a great army including a frightening army of Elephants.

Porus Defeated Spared Alexander Life .


I have written a number of articles on these subjects. In an earlier article that Alexander's triumph over Porus and Alexander' subsequent return to Greece looked suspicious., as thte source one depends on heavily is Megasthanes's Indica of Chadra Gupta Maurya Empire.
