The question I have is about the timeline in which Krishna summons Vishwakarma to make the city of Indraprastha for the Pandavas; so, did this occur after the Mahabharata war? Or did that take place before the war?

1 Answer 1


First of all it's Maya, architect of Danavas and not Vishwakarma, architect of Devas. (Ref1, Ref2)

This took place before Mahabharata war. After Maya built Sabha Bhavan in Indraprastha, below are the major events before Mahabharata war:

  • Arjuna went for 12 years exile (Ref)

  • Pandavas go for Dikvijaya and Rajsuya Yajna (Ref)

  • Pandavas went for 13 years exile (Ref)
