Those who tried to worship gods were imprisoned. He also imprisoned Shiva's devotee Sudakkshina. All the gods went to Shiva and asked him to kill Bhima. One day, Sudhakshina made a Shivalinga in the prison and started worshipping it. When Bhima came to know about this he went to the prison and struck the Shivalinga with a sword. Out came Shiva himself and burnt Bhima with one blow of his breath. The shivalinga was called Bhimeshwar and is still worshipped.
