Once, Hanuman who was in charge of defending Jagannath Puri against the rage of the sea went to Ayodhya without informing Lord Jagannath. As a result, seawater entered the city and damaged the Jagannath temple. To ensure future security, Lord Jagannath has since chained Hanuman commanding him to be watchful day and night.
