According to the Jain legends, Bahubali’s leaving the arena, even after almost winning the duel, cleanses Bharat’s heart. When Bahubali attains Kevalgyan, Bharat becomes his devotee; he installs a golden statue on the exact spot in the jungles of Paudanpura where Bahubali performed austerities. It is a remarkable colossus of 525 bow-length (a bow length equals three feet and four inches). The colossus stands in a thick jungle inhabited by wild beasts. In the beginning devotees from far and wide throng to visit the statue. As it stands in a difficult terrain, slowly and slowly people stops visiting the place and it goes into oblivion, almost forgotten.
