Did You Know?

Draupadi had five husbands, the Pandava brothers.


Bhima and Jayadrath, dressed like wrestlers, duel while his four brothers (Pandavas) and their noble attendants look on. Bhima appears to be the wrestler taller in stature and wears a necklace of bells, and Jayadratha is the one wearing an orange loincloth. Draupadi stands behind Bhima, already being rescued from Jayadratha’s clutches.
