It is said that the PANDAVAS had to live hiding their identity for two years out of 12 years in forest. The PANDAVAS had stayed in the palace of King Birat for 1 year. The KAURAVAS found out that the PANDAVAS are hiding in King Birat’s palace. They therefore stole all the cows of King Birat to force the PANDAVAS to come out with their real identity but they failed. The PANDAVAS along with some other people came out to search the cows and they found them in the place known as GARUWA presntly located in ILAM DISTRICT. While returning back the cows were thirsty but no water. Hence ARJUN hit his arrow named PAGNAKHESTRA to the ground from where the water brusted out for the cows to drink. This is the reason that the place is called ARJUNDHARA.
