Gurgaon is called the Millennium City.
It is a nickname earned for the radical change it has undergone at the close of the 20th century. An ugly duckling in the early years, Gurgaon made a brave plunge to the new-age city abundant with big city comforts.

A city with close links to New Delhi, Gurgaon long set in the shadow of the influential capital, but things have changed since then. Today Gurgaon is the heart of the National Capital Region and the stronghold of the largest outsourcing businesses. It's no surprise to Gurgaon that it's booming with a developing economy and money brought to the area. Over the last ten years the city has overtaken the achievements that New Delhi took centuries to reach.
While rich in business Gurgaon is short history. That means that the city is less culturally diverse than the world's older destinations, but no less appealing. Traveling along the office complexes through a cluster of exquisite shopping malls, cultural development left its mark over the city.

Originally, Gurgaon derived its name from Guru Dronacharya who inherited a sleepy village from his students. Gradually developing, the area earned the name of Guru-gram, but over the time has been cut short to Gurgaon.
Today Gurgaon is far cry from sleepy, but brims with big-city energy. You need to stroll the city to understand that skyscrapers own this place. If you are lucky you may try to find a building only 12 floors up, because the rest of the high-rises literally comb the sky above. In addition, Gurgaon took to the latest fashion of investing money into the tree-lined boulevards and spacious malls.
