The god most commonly associated with holding a trident is Lord Shiva in Hinduism. Shiva’s trident is known as the “Trishula,” and it is one of his primary symbols. The Trishula is a powerful and iconic representation of Lord Shiva’s authority, power, and role as the destroyer of evil forces and impurities in the universe. It carries various symbolic meanings, including the control of three fundamental forces (creation, preservation, and destruction) and the ability to overcome ignorance, desire, and ego. Shiva is often depicted in Hindu art and iconography holding the Trishula as one of his main attributes.
