Based on superstitious beliefs, the isolated village of Nokhur places mountain goat horns on almost every grave in an attempt to fight off evil spirits and help the soul of the deceased ensure safe passage to heaven. The Nokhuris, the mountain tribe of the region, have always considered mountain goats sacred animals, admiring their strength and endurance.
