In between Indra Chowk and Asan Tole, a column on which two statues of Buddha sit back to back paves the way for the entrance to the Jana Bahal, abode of the White (Shveta) Matsyendranath. Near the column, magic diagram has been worked into the pavement. The shrine was set up by Gunakama Deva, thereby bringing the cult of Matsyendranath to Kathmandu from Patan, though in a slightly altered form. The white Matsyendranath is an aspect of Padmapani Lokeshvara.
The shrine was originally in Jamal but was later moved to the Jana Bahal in the 15th century at the time of Yaksha Malla. The bahal was finally restored in the 17th century. One can find many artifacts in this temple.
