Mour Dhwaj - Many times I have wondered what is the significance of this name given to this train. I even tried to deduce it from the literal meaning Mour - Peacock and Dhwaj - Flag. But as you can see, we can't really know what is the meaning of this.
This Sunday, while visiting The temple of Mata Chintpurni Ji, I was reading the posters on the walls and read a familiar name, 'Mour Dhwaj'. The whole story was written there along with the pictures, unfortunately I couldn't click a photo but here is the story in brief -
thought that he is the biggest devotee of Lord Krishna, but Krishna said that there are other great devotees of him. So, after the war of Mahabharata was over, Lord Krishna told Arjuna that he has a devotee who is greater than him and he is King 'Mour Dhwaj'. Lord Krishna took the disguise of a Priest and reached to the king, and told him that his lion, who is a canibal, is hungry. The whole story can be read here - click here

That is the only incidence of a name Mour Dhwaj I can find, I am not sure, but it can be the reason behind the name of this train.

Good information. But I think it is also someway related to 'The Great Mauryan Empire'
Like- Mauryan dwaj (flag or territory of Mauryan)

Well, it is possible but there is not much information available about that. I just read about the story of ‘MOUR DHWAJ’ the king and thought that is the reason but who knows 🤷🏻

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
