Dhankawadi is an outlying borough of the city of Pune in the state of Maharashtra. It lies on the southern edge of the city along old Route 4 just north of where the Route 4 by-pass leaves old Route 4, about 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) south of the Pune city centre.

Dhankawadi was a small village that got subsumed into Pune in 1997. The area has been ungoing rapid building development since 2000.[2] Part of Dhankawadi has been reserved for a bio-diversity park; however, the park remains in the proposal stage.[3]
