Story Of Chitrangada And Arjun In Mahabharat

Story of Chitrangada and Arjun happens during the one year exile period in Mahabharata for entering the room of Draupadi and interpreting her courtship with Yudhisthira. During the one year, Arjun had numerous strange encounters and married couple of women. During his one year pilgrimage, Arjun reached Manipur. He had heard wonderful stories about the warrior princess of Manipur, Chitrangada, and wished to meet her. Chitrangada dressed like a man and lived like a prince in her kingdom.
