Chakraveyu Ka Chakkar

The chakraveyu or human maze was a very difficult war strategy to crack. It is believed that Arjun was one of the few men who could enter the maze and exit it alive. He explained the same to his wife Subhadra who was then carrying his son Abhimanu . But as Abhimanyu was listening intently from him mother’s womb could only enter the maze; his mother unfortunately fell asleep when his father explained the technique to walk out. He was killed inside the maze in his youth as a result. The Halibeedu sculpture depicts the same chakraveyu.
