This place in Delhi is decorated with lush greenery all around and the continue chirping of birds makes it a heaven of the nature lovers as this forest is one of the most thickly wooded areas of the city and home to several species of birds such as Asian Koel, white-breasted kingfisher, purple sunbird and more. A walk through it during winters is perfect to explore its thorny vegetation and rest under the shade of its trees. But the night has an altogether story to tell. The eerie, spooky beings that it is known for a venture in the darkness roaming without abandon in the thick of the forest.

Spread over 10 sq km, the forest has many graves and majaars of Sufi saints and also broken ramparts of Qila Rai Pithora. Several tales of people feeling the presence of something unknown, hearing cries and laughter when no one is around and spotting a lady in a white sari who then vanishes into thin air aren’t uncommon. Though many may not venture into a forest at night, these tales have further cordoned off others. But if you are willing to brave the night, we wish you luck.
