about mawphlang sacred forest

If you thought sacred groves existed only in movies, think again. Meghalaya is one of those rare regions in the country, which still preserves forest and woods and consider its association with human life and ecology to be pure and divine. Mawphlang Sacred Forest is protected by a group of villagers, who put their best effort to make sure the natural resources of the forest are not exhausted by the growing urbanisation. You will see stone megaliths at the boundary of the forest. With orchids and many other species of flora dotting the forest, the place is a pure visual treat. Besides these, many herbs with medicinal properties are believed to be nestled inside the forest. Also, referred to as Nature's Museum, this forest is a delight for botanists from all over the world. In fact, you will find epiphytic growth on the trees, making the forest an ecological treasure.
