  1. There is no name for Arjuna’s chariot (rath) in the Mahabharata war. This chariot was presented to him by Lord Agni. However, this chariot was destroyed after the Mahabharata war. This was because Lord Hanuman who protected Arjuna’s horses & chariot got up from the chariot. Lord Hanuman had protected the chariot & the horses throughout the 18 day war by just sitting on it (invisibly) at the top.

    At the end of the war, after Lord Krishna & Arjuna had walked some distance away from the chariot, Lord Hanuman got up. Immediately, the horses were burnt alive & the chariot burst into pieces. That was the deadly effect of the divine weapons of both, Drona & Karna, on Arjuna’s horses & chariot.
