Lower critical field $$H_{rm c1}$$ of the heavy fermion superconductor URu$$_2$$Si$$_2$$ has been investigated on a ultra clean sample. The whole $$H_{rm c1}$$ ($$T$$) along the $$a$$ axis is well explained by the two superconducting gap structures with line and point nodes. On the other hand, $$H_{rm c1}$$ along the $$c$$ axis shows a distinct kink around 1 K, well below the superconducting transition temperature. The observed anomalous response is possibly related to a peculiar vortex dynamics associated with chiral domains.
