The forces of Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) combat those of the Indian rajah Porus (active 327-315 BC) on the banks of the River Hydaspes, (now the River Jhelum in Pakistan). Although Porus had the advantage of battle elephants, which the Greeks had never encountered before, Alexander still defeated Porus.
