About Gurugram

Gurugram, the millennium city and one of the most happening cities of the country is located in the National Capital Region (NCR), just 33.4 km away from the Indian capital, New Delhi. The city is a significant urban centre and a commercial hub in the state of Haryana.
As history of Gurugram unfolds, the city got its initial name from the name of Guru Drona or Dronacharya (imperial teacher to Pandavas and Kauravas). The region was actually presented to the royal guru as dakshina by his disciples, the pandavas (five sons of Pandu).
The region was then referred as Guru-gram, which can be taken as ‘Village of the Spiritual Teacher’. Afterwards, the region gained its present-day name of Gurugram in the natural course of time. Nevertheless, the city still puts up Guru Gram amongst its stunning development. It is apparent that the Gurugram has its roots from the times of Mahabharata (Sanskrit epics of ancient India).
