King Indradyumna making arrangements for installation

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 24 to 26)

Jagannath temple, Puri, Puri district, OdishaMeditation: I meditate on Vishwakarma building the chariots of Lord Jagannatha, Balarama and Subhadra at Purushottama Kshetra.

King Indradyumna making arrangements for installation: When Indradyumna reached the earth he saw the Lord and the shrine still intact due to the grace of Purushottama. With the help of sage Narada and Padmanidhi he started making all the arrangements for the installation of the Lord. Sage Narada told him to build three chariots for Krishna (Jagannatha), Balarama and Subhadra. The chariots were built by Vishwakarma on a single day and were installed by sage Narada. During this time a king by name Gala was worshipping a stone image of Madhava in the shrine (when Indradyumna was in Brahmaloka) which Indradyumna moved to an adjacent smaller shrine. The king was angry and came to attack Indradyumna with a huge army. But when he came to know about him and his purpose, he submitted to him and joined him in this work of Madhava.
