Gurgaon district is situated in NCR of Delhi, the capital of India. It is just 10 kms away from Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi. The district derived its name from the name of Guru Dronacharya; the village was given as gurudakshina to him by his students; the Pandavas and hence it came to be known as Guru-gram, which in course of time got distorted to Gurgaon. Thus the district has been existence since the times of Mahabharata. The district is surrounded by Delhi & Rajasthan.


It is said that Yudhishtar, the eldest brother among the Pandavas, gave this village to his guru, Dronacharya, whose tank still exists on the west side of the Railway Road. Actual village "GURGAON" is about 1.5 km. away from Gurgaon town, where the temple of SHEETLA MATA, attracts devotees in large numbers on every Monday and Tuesday.


During Akbar's reign, the district fell within the subas of Delhi and Agra, and comprised, wholly or partly, the sikars of Delhi, Rewari, Suhar Pahari and Tijara. With the decay of the Mughal empire, it remained in a disturbed state as a consequence of fighting between the neighboring chiefs till 1803 AD when most of it came under the British rule through the Treaty of Surji Arjungaon with Sindhia. The town was first occupied by the cavalry unit posted to watch the army of Begum Samru of Sirdhana, whose principal cantonment was in the village Jharsa, 1.5 km. to the south-east of the town.


With the formation of HUDA, under Haryana Urban Development Act 1977, the development of Gurgaon is taking place by leaps and bounds. Whereas Maruti Udyog Limited has given much fillip to bring Gurgaon on international map. For a rapid growth of Gurgaon, the Director Town & Country Planning has involved private sector organisations like DLF, Ansals, Unitech etc. besides HUDA, towards development of residential sectors, as well as many commercial areas. The industrial areas are being development by HSIDC, and Udyog Vihar is now proud to have many multinational companies. The commercial complexes developed, or in the process of development, like Plaza Tower, Corporate Park, Gateway Tower, Nestle Tower, DLF Square, Signature Towers, Global Business Park, etc. are comparable to any such complexes around the world. Today, Gurgaon can also boast of a five star Hotel Bristol already functioning in DLF City-l. A number of clubs have come up in Gurgaon such as DLF Gymkhana Club, Ansal's Chancellor Club, South City Club, HUDA Gymkhana Club and Utopia Club. DLF Golf & Country Club is the first of its kind in the area, with day & night Golf playing facilities. The development of Gurgaon is proceeding in accordance with the concept of NCR, and thus being developed as a satellite town of Delhi. Management Development Institute, Haryana Institute of Public Administration, Staff Colleges of Premier Banks are already functioning in Gurgaon. The Rose Garden in Sector 15-1, Citizen's Park in Sector 15-11, HUDA Park bordering Sector 14 and Leisure Valley Park in Sector 29 are pretty beautiful places to enjoy evenings.
