According to the Puranas, this place been named after a saga called Kagabhusundi who sat in penance at this place. Kagaveni lies at the bank of Kali Gandaki River on the way to Muktinath few miles away from Jomsom. This is renowned as a confluence of two rivers: Krishna Gandaki and Kaga Khola since meeting places of sacred rivers have great religious value in Hindu culture like Prayaga Ganga- the confluence of Ganga and Jamuna, and Deva Prayag-the confluence of Ganga, Jamuna and Alaknanda.
