The Ahirs, considered as the descendents of Lord Krishna are predominantly a pastoral community. One of the largest communities with over 10,000 members, the Ahirs practice an embroidery style locally called 'Soi Bharat'. Soi embroidery is known for the various shaped mirrors embedded in each design. Popular motifs include the peacock, parrot, scorpion, elephant, the milk maid and flowers.
