Trivenighat is the final abode of Lord Krishna in Karmabhoomi Gujarat. After killing the Yadavas, Lord Krishna came to the confluence of Hiran, Kapila, and Saraswati. Here, in a state of agony, Pipal was sitting with his right foot on his left leg, leaning on his body. Then a hunter named Zara understood the deer and shot an arrow. This arrow hit Lord Krishna’s right foot and this is where Lord Krishna’s Nirvana took place. On the seventh day after Nirvana, Arjuna performed the funeral of Lord Krishna here.
Bhagwan Shree Krishna was resting in a meditation pose under a pipal tree when the poacher misunderstood the foot of Bhagwan Shree Krishna as a deer and hit it from a distance. Shree Krishna generously pardoned the poacher and blessed him. This divined Leela of Shree Krishna is immortalized by a beautiful temple and an ancient peepal tree. Shree Krishna then walked a small distance and arrived at the holy banks of the river Hiran from where he took his last journey to his Needham.
