A Buryat door-god, the "Chief Creator of Fortune." His idol was placed in the middle of the hut, a place of honor. See also Emelgdji and Chandaghatu.

These door-gods were not prayed to, but are offered a portion of the food or drink at meal times by greasing the mouths of the fetishes, and sprinkling some of the broth by them. They were expelled by Buddhism, except Dsaiagachi.
