Reason Behind the Change

Renaming cities is not uncommon and is often motivated by historical, cultural or political considerations. In this context, the shift from Ghaziabad to Gajaprastha seems to be rooted in a desire to reconnect with cultural and historical roots. Translated as “Elephant City,” Gajaprastha reflects the city’s efforts to honor its heritage and give a sense of pride.

Proponents of the name change symbolize a break from the colonial past, regaining a name more in connection with local history Elephants, revered in Indian culture, are associated with strength, wisdom, and prosperity, making the city’s transformation a symbolic backdrop.
