Almost in a calling distance from Yampi Stupa and just outside the old city gate called Palwan Dhwakha (Dhokhasi gate) lies a very small shrine dedicated to Sainthu Ganesh. The Ganesh in this shrine is regarded as the guardian deity of this historical city gate whose main duty is to keep an eye on those who are allowed to enter the city.

Historically this Dhwakha was a very important checkpoint where travellers and traders from neighbouring city states like Kantipur and Bhaktapur were checked in.
