History of Gurgaon (25 km)

15-Mar-2018

It’s believed that Gurgaon, in the Mahabharata time (BC), was the place (then known as Guru-ka-gaon), where Dronacharya (the great martial arts master) taught martial arts to Pandav & Kaurav princes. Historically, Gurgaon has been inhabited by Hindus & formed a part of extensive kingdom ruled over by Rajputs of Yaduvansi or Jadaun tribes. Subsequently, Rajputs were defeated by Muhammad Gauri in 1196, then came the rule of Feroz Shah Tughlaq, followed by Taimur, thereafter came Akbar’s reign & then the British rule. After partition of the country in 1947, Gurgaon became a district of the then Eastern Punjab & in 1966 with the creation of the new states of Punjab & Haryana, Gurgaon became a district of Haryana.

Gurgaon is widely known as the Millennium City & currently has a population of over 20 lacs. It has large no. of malls, multiplexes & night clubs. It’s Educational / Medical / Automobile / IT hub of Haryana. Gurgaon truly is a cosmopolitan city & has the facilities, services & infrastructure required by the elite.
