Bedi Hanuman Temple Puri
Bedi hanuman was called as “daria mahavir” in puri. Here daria means sea and mahavir means hanuman. It means the lord here will protect the entire city from the sea’s fury.
The temple is at a distance of 1.5km from Puri and 3km from Jagannath temple. It is a small seaside temple west of Chakra Narayana Temple.
There is a story behind the name of the Bedi Hanuman temple. During the construction of the Jagannath temple, the God of sea Varuna enters the Jagannath temple to pay his respect. The seawater entered the city and caused much damage to the temple.
Then he called Hanuman to explain why it happened. But unfortunately, Hanuman was not there and went to Ayodhya without intimating him.
Then Jagannath tied his hands with rope to a wall and instructed him to watch day and night strictly. Tying hands means bedi, so we call Hanuman here bedi hanuman or chained Hanuman. He protects the entire city.
