PANDAVAS

Hindu Heroes.

There are the five sons of PANDU by two wives — KUNTI and MADRI. But they were not really his sons as each one had a God for a father.

Their names were ARJUNA, BHIMA, NAKULA, SAHADEVA and YUDHISHTHIRA. For further details of their conflict against the KAURAVAS we refer you to the Mahabharata, an epic tale written in Sanskrit some 2,000 years ago. It's only 180,000 lines long — so if you have a spare year or two why not learn Sanskrit and have a go? We would then be more than happy to pass on any enquiries. Or you could simply watch the film.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Pandavas graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Pandavas movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Pandavas statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Pandavas. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
