Abstract: Sacred groves are a group of trees or a patch of vegetation protected by the local people through religious and cultural practices evolved to minimize destruction. Nature worship is an ancient Indian tradition and all forms of life have been considered as sacred.

For this the tree diversity in some prominent sacred groves of Rajouri was studied by random sampling using Quadrat method. Altogether, 75 plant species were enumerated from the sacred groves, which include 48 tree species. Based on the calculations of frequency, density and abundance, IVI of each species was calculated.
