Ten days after the famous ‘Mughalsarai’ station was renamed as Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction, the Uttar Pradesh government has now approached the centre to rename Bareilly, Kanpur and Agra airports.
The Bareilly airport is to be named ‘Nath Nagri’, which is believed to be an ancient name for this city, reported PTI. Bareilly is known for its history of having ardent worshippers of Lord Shiva hence ‘Nath Nagri’ has been suggested as a new name, said a proposal from the state civil aviation department.
The city is surrounded on all sides by as many as seven Lord Shiva temples — Alakhnath, Trivatinath, Marhinath, Dhopeshwarnath, Vankhandinath, Tapeshwarnath and Pashupatinath. The proposal lists great details about Bareilly.
