Haryana government renames Gurgaon as Gurugram

This decision has been taken by Haryana’s Manohar Lal Khattar government, which said on Tuesday that people in the area have been demanding this change for a while, now.

“Haryana is a historic land of the Bhagavad Gita and Gurgaon had been a centre of learning,” the spokesman added.

According to district website, the area is named after the mythical archery teacher Guru Dronacharya of the Mahabharata, who, the story goes, was gifted this village by his grateful students, the Pandavas. After that, it came to be called Guru-gram – or Guru’s village – and over the course of time, its name got distorted to Gurgaon.

The Haryana government has also decided to change the name of Mewat district to Nuh.
