Has anyone made a thorough research of the Mahabharata and figured out when this war actually took place with exact astronomical evidence? Are there dates in any other text for the Mahabharata war?


According to Wikipedia on Kurukshetra War, 22 November 3067 BCE.

K. Sadananda, based on translation work, states that the Kurukshetra War started on 22 November 3067 BCE.

B. N. Achar used planetarium software to argue that the Mahabharata War took place in 3067 BCE.

  • Bheeshma died after Uttarayana started ( around Dec 21st). War must have started atleast 2 months before this as Bheesma was in bed for 58days. I have read most of the past researches. I am looking for scriptural evidence apart from Mahabharata itself. – Rama27 Oct 14 '17 at 5:17
