It is said that Aravalli, Sooravalli, Veeravalli along with their 7 Sisters ruled this area long back. They belonged to Reddy Community and were experts in Witchcraft. They were very powerful and were not conquered by any other rulers in that region. Many of them died in the war against these Sisters and some of them were taken as prisoners. The Pandavas and Dhuriyodhanas belong to this Era and were ruling in their own areas.It was sometime earlier to the Bharatha Yudham that Lord Krishna narrated the details of the Aravalli Sisters, their valor and witchcraft to the Pandavas and requested them to ware war against these Aravalli Sisters. On this, the Bheema (One of the Pandavas) said that he will go and conquer them. He was moving towards this place by crossing so many thick forests. On hearing this news through Naratha, the Aravalli Sisters arranged to defend him by sending Tigers, Bears and Boars by using their witchcraft. But, Bheema beat them with his Thandayutham.
