Son of Bhima from demoness Hidimba. Ghatotkacha (Sanskrit: Ghaṭōtkaca "Bald Pot"), is a character in the Mahabharata, which is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana.
Ghatotkacha is the son of Bhima and the giantess Hidimbi (sister of Hidimba). His maternal parentage made him half-rakshasa and gave him many magical powers such as the ability to fly that made him an important fighter in the Kurukshetra war, the climax of the epic. He got his name from his head, which was hairless (utkaca) and shaped like a ghatam.
