Arjuna's Gandiva is the most powerful weapon


It is said that the Gandiva was created by the creator Brahma himself (Karn Parv, sec 72).
Gandiva was created by Brahman Himself and He carried it for one thousand year, for five hundred and thee years it was with Prajapati, Indra kept it for eighty-five years, After Indra it was with soma for five hundred years and king Varun carried it for one hundred year and for last sixty five years it is being used by Arjuna for 65 years.
The Power of Gandiva is such that once Arjuna faced God Siva with this great Gandiva He faced many battles and defeated huge number of enemies alone with it. It produced strong vibrations from its twanging, causing huge destruction to the enemies.
Now to the story how Arjuna got Gandiva:

Shortly after his return to Indraprastha, Arjuna visited the Khandava forest with Krishna. They encountered Agni, the fire-god, who was ill from consuming ghee as one king had performed many 'yagnas' (ritual invocations with fire), thus feeding ghee to Agni. He asked Arjuna and Krishna's help in consuming the forest in its entirety to restore him to health. Takshaka the serpent-king (it was due to this fire that the serpent king fled from there and took refuge with Karna and told him that he can use him at the tip of his arrow when fighting with Arjuna) a friend of Indra's, resided there and Indra thus causes rain whenever Agni tries to burn his friend's home. Arjuna told Agni that he must possess a powerful unbreakable bow to withstand the power of Indra's astras. Agni invoked Varuna, and gave Arjuna the Gāndeeva, an incredibly powerful bow, which gave its user sure victory in battle and a divine chariot, with powerful white horses that do not tire and cannot be wounded by normal weapons.


Arjuna tells Agni to proceed, and fights a duel with his father which lasted several days and nights. A voice from the sky proclaims Arjuna and Krishna the victors, and tells Indra to withdraw.
