Accordingly, “[...] Near the Master’s cremation-ground Bharata had the carpenter-jewel erect a temple of jeweled slabs, a yojana square, three gavyūtis high, named Siṃhaniṣadyā, like a foot-print of the house of nirvāṇa. [...] Made of various jewels as described, very beautiful in the three worlds [...] with heaps of five-colored flowers made on the ground; inundated day and night by constant smoke from incense of camphor, aloe, and musk, like Mt. Kalinda by Kālindī [...]”.
