Mahapravu-Vargi Hanuman, Bedi Hanuman

Mahapravu-Vargi Hanuman, Bedi Hanuman
Vargi Hanuman: The temple is situated on Lokanatha road towards the west of Mahapravu Shree Jagannath Temple. Formerly, Vargis a clan from Maharashtra would pass through this way on their horse, creating a disturbance to the temple and the people of puri. These Vargis were devoted to Hanuman, and so to stop them entering Puri a Hanuman Murti was kept in this area. The Vargis were reluctant to pass the Hanuman murti, thus Puri was protected from the attack of the Vargis from Maharashtra.
Bedi Hanuman: The Bedi Hanuman temple is situated on the left side of the Chakratirtha road leading from Subash Bose Chowk to Penthakata. Mahapravu Shree Jagannatha engaged Pravu Hanuman to protect Puri Dham from His father-in-law, Ocean. Because sometimes the ocean waves would enter Puri and people would suffer. Thus Hanuman was posted here by Mahapravu Shree Jagannath to guard so that the ocean waves could not enter the town.
One time, however Pravu Hanuman left this place, without informing Mahapravu Shree Jagannath to visit Ayodhya. As a result the ocean waves entered the town and the people were in great distress. Mahapravu Shree Jagannatha brought Pravu Hanuman back from Ayodhya and bound him with the rope or bedi, ordered him to never leave this place and do his duty nicely. Hanumanji left this place as everyday he would be only fed with Khichadi prasadam. Wanting to relish delicious food he secretly had visited Ayodhya at night.
After this whole incident, Mahapravu Shree Jagannath ordered his servants to supply special mahaprasadam for Hanumanji daily. Even today this deity of Hanuman is offered special laddus in the temple.
Because Hanuman is situated near the ocean (daria) He is also known as Pravu Daria Hanuman.
