India history and geogprahy

Trivṛtā (त्रिवृता) is the name of a locality mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 44. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.

Two localities named Trivṛtā and Śrīgohālī have been mentioned as connected with the village named Vāyigrāma. Literally it means “surrounded or covered by three sides”. It seems that when the locality was founded the city was surrounded by some natural boundary on its three sides. This may have been in the form of rivulets or streams or hillocks.
