Hinduism - Who Is Krpacharya In Hindu Mythology?

Krpacharya is a legendary archer who instructs both the Pandavas and the Kauravas, the two contending families in the Mahabharata, the later of the two major Hindu epics.

Duryodhana, the Kaurava leader, is a supporter of Krpacharya.

During the year that the Pandavas are in hiding, he sends spies to track them out.

He fights on the side of the Kauravas in the Mahabharata battle.

During the night raid after the Pandava triumph, he sets fire to the Pandava camp, which is his most crucial deed.

Those who attempt to escape the flames are all murdered.

He spends some time after the war at the court of Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandava brother, but eventually abandons the world to live in the forest.
