Abstract: The present study is basically an empirical research which attempts to understand the phenomenon of sacred groves not just as a physical entity but as a social space Usually the sacred groves are small patches of forests which are dedicated to deities Apparently the people do not fell or touch them for fear of the reigning deities of the groves But the notion of supernatural is itself the creation of human beings Very often they take shelter under the notion of the supernatural to fulfill the mundane needs of society In other words the sacred groves have manifested features and latent functions which basically fall under the realm of political economy The main objective of the study was therefore to fathom the latent dimensions of the sacred groves by interpreting the perceptions of the people who preserve the sacred groves It was also attempted to decipher the functional utility of the groves and record the recent changes which are taking place in them and provide explanations for these Though this study is basically exploratory in nature attempt has been made to link it up with a particular theory of society
