Ganga Mahala is the new name of the Yameshvara Ghat. This was part of the Sankatha Ghat till 1864 when Maharaja Jiyajirao Scindhia, king of Gwalior, has purchased it and built a grand palace and also the nearby ghat. The king family given name to this palace as Ganga Mahal, that is how later the ghat is known by this name. There is another such palace built by the king of Banaras, called Ganga Mahal (I, the second ghat from south, after Asi). This ghat is more significant for its artistic palace, instead of the religious festivities. In the northern and southern corners the circular porches with octagonal designs are the most attractive scenes. There is a temple of Radha Krishna in the compound, where on all the major festivals group chanting and celebrations are performed. There are two entrances from the river bank side, representing like climbing tunnels built with stone slabs. In the early 20th century the palace was repaired and several additions added by Govinda Bali Kiratankara. In 1988 the irrigation department of Uttar Pradesh has repaired and built the whole ghat pucca.
