|Description:||Immediately after the Draupadi Ratha, comes the Arjuna Ratha, standing on the same basement. A little further on is the Bhima Ratha. It is rectangular in form. It looks like a long hut, constructed on a paltform supported by pillars. The first floor is completed, but some of the pillars of the ground floor, on the other hand, seem to have been abandoned suddenly during construction. All these pillars, which according to some authors, derive from the stupa, have a base in the shape of a seated lion. They are not real shrines, but are already miniature models of buildings.|
