Jana Bahal or Janabahaa: also called Machindra Bahal dates back to 4th century BC but the temple at Janabahal was built by King Yaksha Malla in 1502 AD. The main deity residing in the temple is the Seto Machindranath also known as Janabaha Dyo, Aryavalokitesvara, Karunamaya.
Originally known as “Kanak Chaitya Mahavihar”, because of the chaitya of Kanakmuni Buddha in front of the temple, the courtyard began to be referred to as Jahabaha after the deity Seto Machindranath was mounted here.
