Today, in all the hullabaloo of a small town evolving into a major city, there is still The Embassy, an oasis of peace and harmony. A community like few others in the country, bonded by a camaraderie and pride, where every family’s best friend is another family in the complex, and life is celebrated with joy and gusto at every opportunity throughout the year.”

Mr Jitendra Virwani, Chairman of Embassy Group, added: “The Embassy was our first ever project of its kind, and I was only 24 years old when we developed it.
