One of the fastest growing suburbs in Asia, Kothrud,

Many are not aware that Paud Road leads to Chandni
Chowk and there on to NDA and Pashan. Infinity Disco

a few frames for cheap. Food definitely ought to
be tried out here from the tapris, which
offer from Chinese to Tandoori. The panoramic view
of the hills ahead from Paud Road as it curves through
Kothrud till Chandni Chowk is what many overlook
while passing through the backdrop.
