Sacred groves are rich sources of biodiversity conserved by local people in the name of religious beliefs.

In the 60 sacred groves studied a total of 87 tree species belonging to 44 families were observed. Out of these 87 tree species found in the study area 74 were medicinal, 12 of religious importance and 30 were identified as aesthetically and economically.
