It is accepted that Daria Mahavir safeguards Sankha Kshetra Puri against the rage of the ocean. It is Daria Mahavir’s obligation to see that the sea doesn’t cross its cutoff points and enter the fringe limits of Puri. Yet, when the Jagannath Temple was constructed, Varuna, the God of the Sea, ready to came to the Jagannath sanctuary to offer his appreciation. Meanwhile ocean water entered the city, making extensive harm the sanctuary.
The enthusiasts appealed to Lord Jagannath who requested that Hanuman make sense of how the ocean entered the city in his presence. Ruler Hanuman told that he was absent around then and was left for Ayodhya without illuminating him.
On finding out about Lord Hanuman’s unscheduled visit to Ayodhya, Lord Jagannath got his hands and feet bound with rope (bedi) and requested that he be careful on the beach constantly. Since his hands and feet bound with rope (bedi), he is known as ‘Bedi Hanuman’ or ‘Tied Hanuman’. There is a prevalent view that from that point forward, the ocean has not gone into the city.
