These three are also called Partha, since Pritha is another name of Kunti. Yudhishthira : The eldest Pandava brother. His name means "one who is steadfast even during war". His parents were Kunti and Yama, god of virtue, justice and morality.

Though he lacked the characteristic combat prowess of a Kshatriya , Yudhishthira was one of the most virtuous men, skilled in the duties of a king and steadfast in the path of dharma. He was a good king who, along with his brothers, founded the prosperous city of Indraprastha. He performed two Ashwamedha sacrifices and one Rajasuya sacrifice. Yudhishthira learnt to control the dice from the Sage Brihadaswa and became good at playing chess.

His other names are Ajatshatru "without enemies" and Dharmaraja "admired for virtues". Bhima : The second Pandava brother. His name means "of terrible might". His parents were Kunti and Vayu, the god of air and wind, who was known for his might.

Bhima has the physical strength and prowess equal to a hundred elephants and was very athletic. He was aggressive and prone to anger. Bhima was devoted to his family and was their natural protector. He was a master in wielding the mace. He was also a powerful archer, having fought Drona and Ashwatthama and Karna on several occasions.

Bhima was also very skilled in diverse areas of warfare, including wrestling, charioteering, riding elephants and sword fighting. Along with Arjuna, he went on expeditions to conquer the kingdoms to the east and south. During the Rajasuya Yagna , Bhima subjugated the kingdoms of the eastern direction completely. During the war, Bhima was most famous for slaying one hundred Kauravas and Duryodhana himself.

He was also skilled in chopping wood, cooking, culinary arts and sciences. However, he was selfish as well. He married a rakshashi Hidimba during their hiding in the forest in addition to Draupadi and had a son Ghatotkachh. Arjuna : The third Pandava brother. His name relates to "arjana" or earning. His parents were Kunti and Indra, king of the gods and the god of the sky and war. He was very virtuous and avoided unjust acts. He was known for his singleminded concentration, determination and his devotion to Krishna.

He was the only person to whom Lord Krishna displayed his complete param avtara. Arjuna was more fortunate than his brothers as he was the favourite of Bhishma, popular among the people, famous among the gods and attractive to women. He was the favourite disciple of his guru Drona , who taught weaponry. Arjuna was ambidextrous and perhaps the greatest of archers, having mastered archery to the highest possible level.

He was rivalled by Bhishma, Drona and Karna. Arjuna was a complete master archer, a supreme chariot warrior and had also obtained near-perfect mastery over almost all divine, celestial and esoteric weapons, along with the secrets of invoking and recalling them. He spent five years acquiring and mastering divine weapons from Indra and the other gods. He also acquired the mastery over the rarest and the most powerful weapon, the Pashupatastra , from Lord Shiva himself.

He also had command over devastating weapons like the Brahmastra. Nakula : The fourth Pandava brother. His name means "without kula or, lineage ". His parents were Madri and the Ashwin twin Nasatya. He was attractive, humble, diplomatic and helpful.

During the Rajasuya Yagna, Nakula conquered the western direction. During the Kurukshetra War, he slew many warriors including many sons of Karna and son of Shakuni, Uluka. Nakula and his younger twin brother, Sahadeva, were excellent sword fighters. Nakula was also a master of equestrian arts and sciences, skilled in wielding unusual weapons, in chariotry and in riding horses.

He was known for his understanding and special ways with horses. Sahadeva : The fifth and the youngest brother of the Pandavas. His name means "along gods" or "with gods". His parents were Madri and the Ashwin twin Dasra. Sahadeva was the wisest of all the Pandava brothers, and the most mysterious and introverted. Like Nakula, Sahadeva was a master of sword fighting.

He was also skilled in fighting and taming wild bulls. Additionally, he was a skilled cowherd, capable of maintaining cattle, treating their diseases, assessing their health, milking them and in producing milk products. Sahadeva acquired mastery over the science of Dharma, religious scriptures and other branches of knowledge under the tutelage of the Sage Brihaspati , the preceptor of the gods.

Sahadeva had a strong premonition which often warned him of upcoming dangers. During the Rajasuya War, Sahadeva conquered the southern direction, up to the kingdom of Lanka. During the Kurukshetra War, Sahadeva slew the wicked Shakuni. Karna : The unknown Pandava. His name refers to the earrings he was born with. His parents were Kunti and Surya , god of the Sun. Bound by the power of the mantra, Surya sired Karna with Kunti.

Karna was born with golden armour and earrings, which granted him complete immunity to divine weapons and any physical threat. Fearing censure, Kunti set him afloat in the Ganga river in a wicker basket filled with lotuses and he was subsequently found and raised by Adhirath, a charioteer of Hastinapur and his wife Radha. He gained the knowledge of divine and celestial weapons comparable to Arjuna under parashurama. He helped Duryodhana kidnap the princess of Kalinga in her Swayamvara , and he singlehandedly defeated all the kings in battle.

When criticised by Bhishma, Karna pointed out that Bhishma had done the same thing in the past. Karna was the only warrior to defeat and humble the powerful Jarasandha in battle.

For the first and only time in his life, Jarasandha surrendered to Karna and made an alliance with him. When Bhishma ridiculed Karna for his pathetic combat prowess, Karna single-handedly conquered the entire world and made Duryodhana the emperor. During the Kurukshetra War, Bhishma declared that the Pandavas were invincible.

Karna proved him wrong by defeating Yudhishthira, Bhima, Nakula and Sahadeva on several occasions during the battle. Urged by Krishna, Arjuna beheaded Karna when he was trying to pull his chariot wheel from the mud. Karna was a great master in archery, equalling Dronacharya, Bhishma and Arjuna. Yudhishthira nearly lost the will to rule the kingdom after finding the truth about Karna. Amongst the primary antagonists was Duryodhana loosely translated as "unconquerable" , cousin to the Pandavas.

He was the eldest of brothers known as the Kauravas, who were born to Dhritarashtra , the blind king of Hastinapura , and his queen Gandhari , princess of Gandhara. The Pandavas were born to Pandu and his wives, Kunti and Madri by the boon given to Kunti by Durvasa , that she could have a son by any god whom she respects without having any marital affair. At his death, Rishi Kindama cursed Pandu that he would surely die if he attempted to have sexual relationships with his wives. Because of this curse, Kunti had to use her boon to get sons.

At the request of Pandu she shared this boon with Madri to get her sons, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva from the divine Ashvin twins. As children, the Pandavas and Kauravas often played together. However, Bhima one of the Pandavas was always at odds with the Kauravas, particularly with Duryodhana, who refused to accept the Pandavas as his kin.

This usually led to much tension between the cousins. Insecure and jealous, Duryodhana harboured intense hatred for the five brothers throughout his childhood and youth, and following the advice of his maternal uncle Shakuni , often plotted to get rid of them to clear his path to the lordship of the Kuru Dynasty. This plotting took a grave turn when Dhritarashtra had to relent to the will of the masses and rightfully appointed his nephew Yudhishthira as crown prince.

This went against the personal ambitions of both father and son Dhritarashtra and Duryodhana and drove Duryodhana into such a rage that he enthusiastically agreed to an evil ploy by Shakuni to murder Yudhishthira. Shakuni commissioned the construction of a palace in Varnavrata, secretly built by incorporating flammable materials into the structure, most notably the lacquer known as lac.

This palace was known as Lakshagraha. Duryodhana then successfully lobbied Dhritarashtra to send Yudhishthira to represent the royal household in Varnavrata during the celebrations of Shiva Mahotsava. The plan was to set the palace on fire during the night while Yudhishthira would likely be asleep. Yudhishthira left for Varnavrata, accompanied by his four brothers and their mother Kunti.

The plan was discovered by their paternal uncle Vidura , who was very loyal to them and an extraordinarily wise man. In addition, Yudhishthira had been forewarned about this plot by a hermit who came to him and spoke of an imminent disaster. Vidura arranged for a tunnel to be secretly built for the Pandavs to safely escape the palace as it was set afire.

The Swayamvara turned out to rely on the skills of archery, and Arjuna, who was a peerless archer, entered the competition and won.

When the brothers took Draupadi to introduce her to their mother, they announced to Kunti that they had arrived with excellent alms. Kunti was busy with some work, and replied without turning to look at Draupadi who was the alms referred to ordering the brothers to share the alms equally amongst the five of them. When Dhritarashtra heard that the five brothers were alive, he invited them back to the kingdom.
