Bhāratayuddha (भारतयुद्ध) is depicted as a sculpture on the fourteenth pillar of the southern half of the maṇḍapa of the temple of Lokeśvara.—From the middle panel starts the scenes from the Bhāratayuddha, the fatal war that was fought between the two clans of cousins. The capture of cows followed by the two fights opened the gates for the Mahābhāratayuddha. Now the ajñātavāsa of Pāṇḍava princes was over. They claimed their right over the kingdom. Duryodhana refused, as usual. So war was declared. Different war scenes illustrate it on north, east and south façades of the pillar and are based on an episode from the Mahābhārata, Bhīṣmaparva, Śalyaparva, Karṇaparva.Source: Archaeological Survey of India: Śaiva monuments at Paṭṭadakal (śilpa)
