The Romantic Avenue

Attaturk%20Ave.JPGAttaturk Avenue is one of my favourite roads in Islamabad. This road forms a link when you are coming from the presidency either through Khayaban- e- Iqbal (Margalla Road) or the Aga Khan road. The road is single lane for two way traffic, flanked on both sides with shady trees and jogging tracks. The total stretch is about 800 meters. Although the road itself is not quite busy with traffic, yet you can see many health conscious Islooites moving on jogging tracks especially late into the afternoon.

Hot%20Spot.JPGThe park is home to Hot Spot Cafe’s branch and serves a wide variety of consumables ranging from cold coffee, iced tea to milkshakes. The park bustles with activity during the early hours of the night and is a popular get away place for the couples. The road has a certain romantic heritage as well. Vital Signs shot a part of their footage for their video “Tum Mil Gayay” (Geetar-93) on this road.
