Death of Kunti in the Mahabharat – How did Kunti Die in the Mahabharata?

When the great war ended in the Mahabharata, Kunti was the most distressed. Although her sons (Pandavas) survived and emerged victorious, she lost many near and dear ones including Karna, her eldest son. Death of Kunti happened soon after. She along with Dhritarashtra and Gandhari took Vanaprastha – they went to the forest to perform intense austerities.

Kunti died in forest fire. This is mentioned in the Ashramavasika Parva of Mahabharata Chapter 36 – 37.
