Why Sohna Road makes for a great investment

Situated in the southern part of Gurgaon, a city in the Indian state of Haryana, Sohna Road is an arterial road that links Sohna or Greater Gurgaon to Gurgaon. Beginning at Rajiv Chowk extending up to Gurgaon, this 23 km stretch is witnessing major developments. Sections along Badshahpur Crossing and Rajiv Chowk are brimming with construction activity and are in turn leading to the developments along sectors 33, 38, 47 to 49 and 66 to 69.

Being a tourist destination, the stretch is dotted with many landmarks like the Grand Park in Aravali range, Shani Dev Temple, Shiva Temple and the Damdama Lake. Some of the popular neighbouring micro markets include DLF Cyber City, Golf Course Extension Road and markets in Gurgaon.
