Let us find out what had exactly happened in this post.

 

Abhimanyu was the son of Arjuna, one of the five Pandava brothers, and Subhadra, the sister of Krishna. He was a brave warrior and a skilled archer.

During the Kurukshetra War, Abhimanyu found himself in the middle of a military formation called Chakravyuha, created by the Kauravas to trap and defeat the Pandavas.

Although Abhimanyu was not aware of how to break out of the formation, he bravely entered it and fought off numerous warriors. However, he was eventually surrounded by the Kaurava army and was unable to defend himself against the many weapons being thrown at him. The Kauravas broke the rules of war by attacking Abhimanyu when he was not armed and could not fight back. They killed him, despite his valiant effort.

The death of Abhimanyu was considered a turning point in the Kurukshetra War and was widely mourned by both sides. His death also led to the eventual victory of the Pandavas and the defeat of the Kauravas.
