I think you can use generate scripts feature in SQL server as follows
Click you DB name > RightClick > Tasks > generate Scripts > choose the table(s) that may have trigger(s) associated > in the last step you will find
Advanced button > under Table/View options properties section you will find
script trigger option > make it true
And you will get the table(s) and trigger(s) script

Use this command. If there would be trigger with name "inst_trigger", this would give you the text of the trigger else you would get the error msg like "The object 'inst_trigger' does not exist"

If you've create your trigger for specific table, then you must click the plus button for that table and you'll be able to see trigger folder. There you can find your trigger. I hope it helps!

iam unable to find out that trigger in object explorer of related database,
You could use below query to find "inst_trigger" is in which table.
select o.name as Trigger_name,quotename(s.name)+'.'+quotename(object_name(o.parent_obj))as Tablename
from sys.sql_modules m join sys.sysobjects o on m.object_id=o.id
join sys.schemas s on s.schema_id = o.uid
where o.name = 'inst_trigger'
If you want to find all database's trigger, please follow below link.
