Amid all the transformation that Delhi has gone through over the years one thing that has been brought down time and again is the forest area of the city. The more we started getting close to the future, the more modernisation started taking larger spaces and the forests had to settle in for less. But there is one such forest that dodged away somehow and has till now maintained its realms perfectly that is the Jahanpanah City Forest. Spread over an area of 800 acres, the forest is close to some of the most visited places of Delhi like Alaknanda, Greater Kailash, Chirag Delhi, Madangir and Ambedkar Nagar. This famous forest of Delhi comes under the care of Delhi Development Authority (DDA). From walking, jogging, practicing yoga and exercising, one can find a number of visitors swarming in here just to take a fresh breath of air. Jahanpanah City Forest is blessed with verdant greenery and is the perfect rescue spot for those who want to sit close to nature and look for answers. Being huge forest area travellers are advised to keep a track of how far they are walking or jogging inside as in the first few trips it can be a little confusing. Besides, milestones and bridges with seat system are set up in the area just to make it easy and enjoyable for visitors who are coming to Jahanpanah City Forest.
