The forest, gazetted as a Forest Reserve in 1906, helps to cleanse the air of its surrounding environment by acting as a purifier for dust and toxic pollutants. It was also gazetted as a Wildlife Reserve and Bird Sanctuary in 1934 and in 1950, a pristine section of about five hectares was gazetted as a Virgin Jungle Reserve.
