During Ratha Yatra, Lord Jagannath comes out on a divine outing with his brother Sri Balabhadra and sister Maa Subhadra along with his divine weapon Sri Sudarshana, leaving behind His wife Mahalaxmi. The Goddess expresses her anger for the Lord. She proceeds to the Gundicha Temple, the Adapa Mandapa, in a palanquin in the form of a Suvarna Mahalaxmi and threatens Him to come back to the temple at the earliest.
To please Her, the Lord concedes to Her by offering her agyaan mala (a garland of consent).
Seeing the Goddess furious, the sevakas close the main door of the Gundicha. Mahalaxmi returns to the main temple through the Nakachana gate.
In a unique ritual, the Goddess orders one of her attendants to damage a part of the Nandighosa chariot.This is followed by her hiding behind a tamarind tree outside the Gundicha Temple. After some time, she escapes to her home temple in secrecy, through a separate path way known as Hera Gohri Lane.
