The great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, has five Pandava princes – Yudishtira, Arjuna, Bhima, Nakula and Sahadeva – as its protagonists. The Pandavas, along with their wife Draupati aka Panchali, were exiled
from Indraprastha following Yudishtira’s defeat in a game of dice with Duryodhana, the ruler of Hastinapura. Legend has it that while they were roaming the forests of Kerala
during their 13 year exile, Panchali Medu was a favorite camping ground for them.
Do the five monoliths seen atop Panchalimedu represent the Pandavas? Could be.
