Subhadra in the Mahabharata

Shiva Murti in the Dakshinamurti madurai temple

Subhadra was the daughter of Vasudeva and Rohini, half sister of Krishna, wife of Arjuna and mother of Abhimanyu. When Subhadra came of marriageable age, Balarama suggested that she marry Duryodhana. The family and Subhadra were against it, but Balarama had already discussed this with Duryodhana.

Affair with Arjuna and kidnapping

Arjuna had heard of Subhadra and wanted to marry her. At that time Arjuna was a wandering ascetic. So he sought the help of Krishna. Krishna told the 'sage' Arjuna to settle near the palace, Subhadra would visit him. So it happened and Subhadra fell in love with Arjuna, who then revealed his true identity to her. Krishna advised him to kidnap her as it would be difficult for Balarama to change his mind.

Krishna calmed the angry Balarama and explained to him that the love between the two was real. Balarama let them celebrate the wedding in Indraprastha. Their son was Abhimanyu, who studied with Pradyumna and became a great warrior. She appears primarily as the sister of Krishna in the form of Jagannatha, and according to tradition, there was an incestuous intimacy between the two.
