Category Historic
Bhadavar was an ancient Bhadravarta kingdom in the Mahabharata period. Mahat Kantar (Hatakant) Vindhyatvi (Ater) and Vindhyakanan (Bhind) are its historical witnesses. The Bhadravarta kingdom was a prosperous republic in the Pandava period. The Kshatriyas were very rich resources here, the prince here had attended the Yudhishthra Yagna with a lot of jewels and gold and offered him a yagna. In the Gopal Tapini Upanishad of Atharvad, Bhadravan is mentioned in Gopal’s favorite two bons which were on the banks of the Yamuna.
