Jamunapari is a breed of goat originating from Indian subcontinent. Since 1953 they have been imported to Indonesia where they have been a great success. It is bred for both milk and meat. The name is derived from the river Jamna Par in Uttar Pradesh, India.
There is a large variation in color but the typical Jamnapari is white with patches of tan on the neck and head. Their heads tend to have a highly convex nose, which gives them a parrot-like appearance. They have long flat drooping ears which are around 25 cm long. Both sexes have horns. The udder has round, conical teats and is well developed. They also have unusually long legs.
