Story – This is why modern city Gurugram (earlier Gurgaon) is still believed to be the city of Guru Dronacharya

It is believed that the city of Gurgaon (literally – “Village of the Guru”) was founded as “Guru Gram” by Dronacharya on land given to him by Dhritarashtra, the king of Hastinapura in recognition of his teachings of martial arts to the princes, and the ‘Dronacharya Tank’, still exists within the Gurgaon city, along with a village called Gurgaon. Indian Government (Haryana) decided to reinstate and change the name of Gurgaon to ‘Gurugram’.
