Gurgaon was gifted to Guru Dronacharya as a part of Gurudakshina (payment) by his Shishyas (disciples - the Pandavas), as mentioned in the epic, the Mahabharata. To preserve the rich heritage of the city and its association with ancient Hindu mythology, the city retained the name ‘Gurugram’ or the ‘village of the Guru’.
