Bishnoi Village - Ardent nature lovers and fierce protectors of animals, the Bishnoi tribe of Rajasthan has earned a reputation for itself. So fierce is their love for the nature legend has it that 363 villagers lost their lives when they offered their heads for every tree the king wanted to cut here. The Maharaja ultimately ordered that no trees would be felled near Bishnoi villages and neither would animals be hunted there.
