There was only existing animal sacrificing or Pashu Bali before periodical external aggressions including from central Asia.It was popular amongst the kings of Khas dynasty and Kanfata Nath Jogis. The animal sacrificing traditions like Athwad[ sacrificing the male buffalo & goats] and Astha bali[ sacrificing eight goats together] is still existing in Uttarakhand. The Nar Bali was preserved by Kings and Tantriks till end of Gorakha domination in 1814 AD. It was a political pressure on public , to break the possible revolutions against rulers.
