Defeat of Mahishasur by goddess Durga

The five sons of Pandu and wife Kunti know as Pandava lost a dice game to Kaurav, their cousins and were exiled for twelve years into the forest. The deal was if the Pandavas are found by Kaurav during this time they would have to serve another banishment of twelve years.

The Pandavas then changed their appearance and in disguise spent all the years escaping from Kaurav soldiers into the forest. Before the completion of the final year of exile, the Pandas hid their weapons in a Shami tree before entering the Kingdom of Virat.

On the conclusion of their exile the tenth day of the Ashwin month, Vijayadashmi they retrieved their weapons from the Shami tree and revealed their identities to Kauravas who then were attacking King Virat. The Pandavas aiding King Virat fought Kauravas and defeated them.
