The Brahman dynasty (c. 632 - c. 724 CE) was a Hindu power on the Indian subcontinent which originated in the region of Sindh, present-day Pakistan. Most of the information about its existence comes from the Chach Nama, a historical account of the Chach-Brahman dynasty. The Brahman dynasty were successors of the Rai dynasty.
The dynasty was founded by a Brahman named Chach of Alor in c. 632 CE after he married the widow of Rai Sahasi II, the last ruler of the Rai dynasty. His claim was further secured by the killing of Rai Sahasi II's brother.
The rule of Sindh by a Hindu dynasty raised ire in the Umayyad Caliphate. Caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan granted a large army to the governor Al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf, but no attempt was made to annex Sindh due to the caliph's death. Under his son and successor Al-Walid I, the general Muhammad bin Qasim invaded Sindh in 710 and killed the last Brahman ruler of Sindh, Raja Dahir, at Indus River, Ror, Sindh.
