Arjuna meets Hanuman in Mahabharata

hanuman in mahabharata
Hanuman and Bhima meeting is known to all, but some stories claim meeting of Hanuman with Arjuna even. The historical story of Hanuman in Mahabharata is not available in the book of Mahabharata or even in Bhagabat Purana. But Wikipedia claims that to be true. However, it depends on the readers how much trust they can put on Wikipedia regarding historical stories, putting aside Mahabharata and Purana. According to the story of Hanuman in Mahabharata, Arjuna reached Rameshwaram and there he exclaims why Lord Rama relied on the Banar sena for the bridge, when he could have built the same with his arrows. A monkey claims that an arrow bridge could not have carried the weight of the Banar Sena. Arjuna builds a bridge of arrow and the monkey with his pressure breaks it and challenges Arjuna, where ultimately Krishna intervenes and the monkey reveals its identity as Hanuman. Finally, Arjuna was given a boon to carry kapidhwaj flag on his chariot, where Hanuman will put the weight, so that the cart cannot be moved.
