The title compound, C(16)H(16)N(4)O(2), crystallizes with two mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit, which are related by a non-crystallographic centre of inversion. The phenyl-ene rings are twisted out of the mean plane of the triazole ring by 19.3 (1) and 21.4 (1)° for one independent mol-ecule and by 16.3 (1) and 18.1 (1)° for the other mol-ecule. In the crystal, adjacent mol-ecules are linked by amine-triazole N-H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming chains running along the a axis.
