During their exile life, Pandavas the five hero brothers and Draupadi, their wife, arrived at Badarikashrama. When Bhima, the strongest of the five, and Draupadi were moving in Badarikashrama forest, considered as a sacred place, a beautiful and fragrant flower called Saugandhika fallen near Draupadi's feet. Charmed by its beauty and fragrance, Draupadi deeply desired more and Bhima set out in search of the celestial flower.
After many adventurous episodes with wild beasts and demons, Bhima ended up at Gandhamadana Hill where he found a pond full of Saugandhika flower. The garden and the pond belonged to Kubera, the lord of Wealth.
One of the interesting events was Bhima's encounter with Hanuman. He took the form of an aged monkey and lied across Bhima's path. Bhima asked Hanuman to move, ange give way for him. For which Hanuman responded he is too old to move and requested Bhima to move his tail to make way. Bhima tried hard, but could not lift Hanuman's tail!
Now realizing it was Hanuman, he apologized to Hanuman asked him to narrate Rama’s glory.
Hanuman blessed Bhima and he continued his way searching for Saugandhika flower, which he found in Kubera's Garden. This was protected by demons called Maniman and Krodhavasha. After a fierce battle, Bhima slays the guards and return to Draupadi with Saugandhika flower.
