Triveni Dham is also known as Gajendra Moksha Divya Dham. The religious theory is that Lord Vishnu himself appeared in this Dham.

According to religious history, while an elephant was going to the Narayani River to drink water in Satyayuga, the crocodile tried to kill the elephant by holding its leg, but at that moment, the elephant prayed to Lord Vishnu for help, after which Lord Vishnu appeared and used his Chakra into a crocodile and saved the elephant.

Many historical temples and shrines are also present at this place. Pilgrims from Nepal and India come here daily to bathe and visit the holy Triveni. Various Maghe Ausi fairs were organized here in January last.

This Dham is a significant religious place in nearby Chitwan Nepal, but there is a need to organize more physical facilities and infrastructure like a road, Dharamshala, restaurant, bathroom, and accommodation.
Seeing the glory and beauty of this Dham even today, one feels the lack of publicity.
