THE ICONIC TEEN MURTI CHOWK IN DELHI HAS BEEN RENAMED AS ‘TEEN MURTI HAIFA CHOWK’:

The iconic Teen Murti Chowk has been renamed after the Israeli City Haifa, a year after the plan was put on hold by the NDMC. The announcement comes after the scheduled visit of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to India. The idea of renaming Teen Murti road and chowk after Haifa was proposed in the New Delhi Municipal Council council during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Israel last year. The Teen Murti Chowk will be renamed as Teen Murti Haifa Chowk, in the centenary year of the Battle for Haifa as a symbol of friendship between the people of India and Israel. The Israeli city was liberated from Ottoman occupation by Indian soldiers during World War I. A large number of Indian soldiers of the 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade died during the battle to free the city and nearly 900 were buried in Israel. The Rediff.com : 14th. Jan,18
