Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar gave his nod to rename Amin village to Abhimanyupur after Mahabharta warrior Arjuna’s son Abhimanyu.
As per a common belief, the village located in the periphery of Kurukshetra, where the tactical ‘chakravyuha’ was arranged by the Kauravas for the Pandavas.
Khattar said Abhimanyupur would be included in the second phase of the Centre’s Krishna Circuit Rs 200-crore development programme to boost tourism in Kurukshetra. He also asked the KDB to install a grand statue of Abhimanyu fighting in the battle.
These measures were announced as a part of Haryana Government’s efforts to promote an organised tourism circuit in the ancient region of Kurukshetra comprising Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Karnal and Panipat districts.
