Jayamanoharavarṇa-mahāvihāra (or, Su Bāhāḥ) is the name of a monastary in the Kathmandu valley attributed to king Guṇakāmadeva I.—The Ṭhākurī kings (fl. 737-1200 A.D.), though predominantly Śaiva, supported Buddhist institutions. Several of the monasteries of the Kathmandu valley are attributed to kings of this period (737-1200) in inscriptions, palm-leaf deeds, manuscript colophons, or their own tradition; for example, Jayamanoharavarṇamahāvihāra and Āsanalokeśvaramahāvihāra, also called Kacchapālagirimahāvihāra (Co Bāhāḥ) to Indradeva (1126–1136).
