The lake which is sacred to Buddhists and Hindus both is the largest of three main lakes the other two being Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda.

The lake which is supposed to have formed when the God Siva plunged his trident (Trisul) into the ground in order to obtain water is a very beautiful lake and looks especially beautiful in the morning time. The Trisuli River is named after the lakes since it's source is in the three lakes.
