About Bedi Hanuman Temple

To the west of Puri’s Chakranarayan Temple is a small temple on the sea side, dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Known as the Daria Mahavir Temple, it has a meaning behind it. In local Oriya language ‘Daria’ refers to the sea, and ‘Mahavir’ is one more name of Lord Hanuman. Occupying an important place in Puri’s cultural history, the east facing temple is visited by many locals as well as tourists. This temple is also known as the Bedi Hanuman Temple. On the outer walls of the temple are images of different Deities including an image of Anjani or Anjana (Lord Hanuman’s mother, holding a baby in her lap.) One of the decorated pedestals also shows images of female divine figures. The southern wall of the temple houses a carved image of Lord Ganesha. The main deity in the temple is a two armed Hanuman with sweets (ladoos) in his left hand and a mace (gada) in his right hand. Various festivals like Hanuman Jayanti, Pana Sankranti, Rama Navami are celebrated with great enthusiasm in this temple.
