Vatsaraja and Nagabhatta II - Pratihara emperors

Vatsaraja who ruled from 780 – 800 AD and Nagabhatta II from 800 – 833 AD were very powerful Pratihara emperors. They took on the powerful Pala empire in the east winning many victories. Vatsaja established Pratihara control over Kannauj making the city centre in north Indian geopolitics. He defeated Arab advances into India. He was defeated by the powerful Rashtrakuta ruler Dhruva. Nagabhatta after an initial defeat by Rashtrakuta emperor Govinda managed to regain territories in north and central India. Kannauj became a central capital city. Nagabhatta II defeated the Arabs and rebuilt the destroyed Somnath temple in Gujarat. The Pratiharas became a very strong empire in north, central, west and parts of east India under these two emperors.
