It is the most beautiful antelope with spiral or ringed horns. It is also known as Krishna Mrigya and has significance in Hinduism and Indian culture.The male is black and white whereas female is brown and white. The colors of male and female resembles to Lord Krishna and his beloved Radha having fair colour.
It is considered sacred by the Bishnoi Community of Rajasthan for the last more than 500 years. Their love for Nature is unbelievable and it is this commitment which have brought the case to a logical conclusion.
I salute the Bishnoi Community for their love for nature and its Denizens .
