Indrasena is one of the charioteers of Arjuna. Prior to the Rājasūya yajña (Rajasuya yajna) Yudhiṣṭhira (Yudhisthira) sent Indrasena to Dvārakā (Dwaraka) to invite Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Learning the news of Rājasūya yajña, immediately started for Indraprastha with this Indrasena.

Indrasena is found to be present in several occasions in Mahābhārata (Mahabharata). He was one of the faithful and loyal attendants of the Pāṇḍavas (Pandavas). When they set out for vanavāsa (vanavasa; exile in forest), Indrasena along with other fourteen servants, accompanied them. They served the Pāṇḍavas during their exile, and also helped them to shift from one forest to another. During the ajñātavāsa (ajnatavasa; staying without disclosing one’s true identity) of the Pāṇḍavas, Indrasena and the other servants were sent away to Dvāraka. Indrasena was present in the city of Upaplavya during the wedding of Abhimanyu.

After this, Indrasena is found in Strīparva (Striparva), during the arrangement of funeral rites for the corpses, after the war. He was one of those who were doing the arrangements, under Yudhiṣṭhira’s instruction.
