Krishna had helped the Pandavas in almost every step. So why didn't the Pandavas spend their agyatavasa in Dwaraka? The Pandavas had spent their agyatavasa in Virata's kingdom, and led a miserable life. Did Krishna not allow them to spend their year in Dwaraka, or did they not even consider it?

Does Hindu scripture ever mention the Pandavas considering going to Dwaraka for that year?

    Simple because that's the first place Duryodhana would look. – Surya Feb 25 '16 at 6:52
  • @Surya: Even Dwarka would have been the first place they would look, but, Pandavas could be sheltered there in some guise. And, Krishna could have created Maya to hide them from spies. – Indu Bhusan Nath Feb 25 '16 at 6:54
  • Not sure, if this question falls under this category: Can we post mythologically hypothetical questions?. I agree with what @Surya said. If Krishna wanted to use MAyA just like that, then there can be so many things which can be changed. – iammilind Feb 25 '16 at 7:05

    @KeshavSrinivasan Suggest you add something to that effect in the Help Center or FAQs or here, I had the same doubt as Rickross when reading this question. – Say No To Censorship Feb 25 '16 at 18:33

    @KeshavSrinivasan If what's written in the Help Centre is obsolete now then what are the rules that you refer to while moderating? – Rickross Feb 26 '16 at 7:06
