They inherited the large kingdom of Magadha and wished to extend it to yet more distant frontiers. To this purpose they built up a vast army consisting of 200,000 infantry, 80,000 cavalry, 8,000 war chariots, and 6,000 war elephants.

Alexander's campaign terminated in the Punjab because of the powerful empire of Magadha ruled by the Anand dynasty. Fearing the prospects of facing powerful Indian army and exhausted by years of campaigning, his army mutinied at the Beas River refusing to march further east.
