Once the king organized Yagya and Bhandara and sent an invitation to Maharishi Chunkat to come. Maharishi refused to leave citing his fast. Taking it as an insult, the king challenged Maharishi to a fight.

Here is the Peepal tree that was pierced by Barbareek and the place where Barbareek donated his head to Krishna. Barbareek story is related with Mahabharata.

In Dwapar Yuga, when the Mahabharata war took place, Ghatotkach's son Barbarik had donated his head to Lord Krishna on this land.

Barbarik, the son of Ghatotkach, received three miraculous arrows as a result of worshiping Mahadev. Because of these arrows, he is called three arrows holder.

In the war of Mahabharata, he came to Kurukshetra sitting on a blue horse with the aim of supporting the losing side.


In many places the name of his horse is also called Leela and for this reason he is also given the noun of Leela's Aswar.

Shri Krishna disguised as a Brahmin asked him to pierce all the leaves of the Peepal tree with an arrow as a test, which Barbarik completed.

Krishna, who became a Brahmin, asked Barbarik for his head as a donation, which Barbarik donated. Krishna gave a boon to Barbarik to be worshiped in his name in Kalyug.
