Who cursed Ashwathama and Why he was cursed?

What happened to Ashwattama after Mahabharata?

Did Ashwathama death happen in Mahabharata?

No Ashwathama death did not happen because he was still alive. Let's dive into what happened to Ashwadhama after Mahabharata. Ashwatthama was cursed by Lord Krishna. In Kurukshetra war, Pandavas killed the father of Ashwatthama, Drona with one cunning strategic plan which was organized by Lord Krishna and performed by Yudhisthira and Bhima. 


For this plan, Pandavas used Aswathama as bait for Drona. As a part of this plan, Drona was killed by Dhrishtadyumna. After Duryodhana was killed by Bhima in a mace fight, there were only a few Kauravas like Ashwatthama, Kripacharya and Kritavarma left. One night Ashwattama wanted to kill Pandavas while they were sleeping but this is adharma way to kill warriors while they are sleeping. 

So Ashwatthama, Kripacharya, and Kritavarma went to the place where Pandavas were used to sleep but unfortunately at the time Pandavas and Krishan were not there because they went outside on another work.

Aswathama entered into the tent of Pandavas and saw 5 persons sleeping there in a row. He thought that they were Pandavas and killed all those 5 persons and went away but he did not know that they are not Pandavas and they are 5 sons of the Pandavas. After Pandavas returned to the tent and came to know what happened and they were in the grief of high sorrow.

All Pandavas and Krishna started searching for Ashwadhama. Finally, they found Ashwatthama. On seeing Pandavas and Lord Krishna, Ashwatthama somewhat understood what happened in that previous night. Krishna felt very sad about the bad things which were happened because of Ashwatthama. Krishna became very angry for what Ashwatthama did to the lineage of the Pandavas and cursed Ashwatthama. 

Krishna cursed Ashwatthama in a way that his body will suffer from a host of incurable diseases forming sores and ulcers that would never heal. Krishna further stated that he would be roaming in the forest for 5000 years without getting any hospitality nor any accommodation from mankind and society.

Ashwatthama was also ordered by Lord Krishna to remove the gem from the forehead. Due to the removal of this gem on his forehead, wounds on Ashwatthama's body will not heal.

This is what happened to Ashwadhama after Mahabharata and about Ashwathama curse. I hope so this answer is enough for your question What happen to Ashwathama after the war?




Where is Ashwathama now or What happened to Aswathama? Is he still alive?

So many people claimed that they have seen Ashwathama alive in different places and they also described him by saying that they saw a tall man with gain height who has a wound on his forehead.

There are some many incidents in which people claimed that they have seen Ashwathama alive proof.


1. Ashwathama was seen by Railway employee: 

                     Railway employee claimed that he saw a tall man with 12 feet height in Navsari jungles which is in Gujarat. He also claimed that a giant man has a wound on his forehead.


2. Prithviraj Chauhan king tried to cure the wounds of Aswathama:

                     Prithviraj Chauhan king saw a giant person while he was roaming in the forest. By seeing those heals of Ashwatthama, Chauhan claimed that he could cure those injuries because he has a knowledge about Ayurved. Prithviraj tried for a week but he was unable to cure those heals and those heals remained the same.

                     Prithviraj got a doubt whether that person was Aswathama because any other normal person wounds could be cured through his medication. That tall man replied by saying he was Ashwadhama and went away. This incident was also written in the book Prithviraj Raso.


There are also many incidents stating that Ashvathama was seen in the places like Ludhiana which is Punjab and nearby Narmada river which is in Gujarat and Shoolpaneshwar and nearby the foothills on the Himalayas. These are all incidents which stated Ashvathama sightings. 

So overall by seeing all these proofs and incidents, one can easily say that Ashwatthama Of Mahabharata Still Alive and he is one of those 8 Chiranjivi. There are so many instances for Ashwathama alive proof.

This is the answer to the question "Is Ashwathama Still Alive". Hope you loved it by reading here.
