Sacred groves are ecosystem conserved on religious faiths. Their soils help in preserving genetic diversity of plants and microbes. Fungal biodiversity in soils of three sacred groves in Tiruchi rappalli District, via., Masimalaiyan Grove (MNG), Kaliamman grove (RAG) and Kamakshiamman grove (KNG) were screened. Undisturbed soils of these groves shared uniqueness of presence of Aspergillus fumigates. A. lerreus, Gladosponnni herbarum, Fu sedum chleerydosporirsm, Mirror numedo, and Penicillium verrueOseer. Soil outside these groves considered to be disturbed, showed A. erythrocephalus, A.versicolour and P. chrysogenum. The following fungi were isolated front both the type of soils. A. Minus, A. noun &en/ lir Ciller, F.mtysporitim, Esolniti, Rhieapus oryzne and Trieltotheeirrin rescion. Fungal biodiversity in the sacred. grove soils can be correlated with rhiaosphere of dominant tree species like Fires religiuse,Diospynn analitaha in RAG. Albizzia amass. Tertninofiti ehebula in MNG and with Wrislaia tincioria and Cassel,. glama ruKOG.
