Sacred Groves of Haryana

In Haryana, unlike in most States, there is no generic name for sacred groves, although the sites are protected for similar reasons. There is also no data regarding the number of sacred groves. 57 sacred groves have been documented in the state.

 

Khetanath, Jairamdas, Shiv, Bala Sundari, Nao Gaja and Mani Goga Peer are some of the deities to whom these sacred groves are dedicated.

 

White Pear, Mandarin, Bruisewort, Garden Violet, Lac tree, Elm, Pipal, Banyan and Flame of the forest are among the most commonly found plant species in the sacred groves.

 

 

The groves act as a repository for medicinal plants and as a source of honey, fruits and water.
