Mother of Arjuna – Who is the Mother of Arjun in the Mahabharata?

Who is the mother Arjun in the Mahabharata? Was he divine born or from a human mother. Story mentioned in the Mahabharat answers as to who is the Mother of Arjuna. Queen Kunti was married to Pandu, the prince of Hastinapura. But Pandu could not have sexual union with Kunti because of a curse.

Kunti in her teenage due to her service to Sage Durvasa had got a boon that she will be able to summon a god and have children in him.

Pandu requested Kunti to make use of the boon.


Thus Arjuna was born when Kunti summoned Indra, the king of the Devas.

The mother of Arjuna is Kunti.

Now a question arises as to did Kunti give birth to Arjuna or she received him as an infant as a blessing from Indra.

No one has ever bothered to answer this question in the scriptures but it is widely believed that she gave birth to Arjuna.
