We know that Hanuman is a great devotee and follower of Lord Rama in Treta Yuga.

But my doubt is, did he meet Krishna?

Is it explicitly mentioned anywhere in Vyasa's Mahabharat or some other Hindu text that Hanuman and Krishna met each other? If true, then what exactly happened during their meeting?

    He does meet Krishna and stays inside the flag of Arjuna during war but i am not sure i context of Vyasa Mahabaratha. – Ankit Sharma Nov 16 '15 at 14:19
  • @AnkitSharma Yeah, as I discuss here, the Bengali version of the Mahabharata tells the story of Hanuman meeting Krishna and Arjuna: hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/2100/36 But I'm not sure whether that story has any scriptural basis. – Keshav Srinivasan Nov 16 '15 at 15:08
  • @KeshavSrinivasan as suspected – Ankit Sharma Nov 16 '15 at 15:10
  • @AnkitSharma You may be interested in the fact that according to the Adi Parva chapter quoted in my question here, the ape flag was already on Arjuna's chariot when he got it: hinduism.stackexchange.com/q/3101/36 Perhaps the ape was the emblem of one of the gods who previously used the chariot. – Keshav Srinivasan Nov 16 '15 at 23:06
