The hidden meaning of Hajo
« on: January 17, 2010, 12:39:54 PM »
I was searching Hajo's personal site, so I typed hajo in google and I was rather surprised when I found that the first result was this article about a town called Hajo...

Hajo is an ancient pilgrimage centre for three religions: Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims. It lies on the banks of the Brahmaputra River, 24 km from the city of Guwahati in the Kamrup district of Assam, India. The area is dotted with a number of ancient temples as well as other sacred artifacts. The Hayagriva Madhava Mandir is the most famous temple of Hajo. Lesser known temples of Hajo like that of Ganesha was constructed during the reign of Ahom King Pramatta Singha in 1744 AD. The Kedareswara Temple, a Shiva temple, has inscription on the temple showing that it is of Rajeswar Singha period.

No, that was new to me, too. Hajo is just a name over here, fairly common in the north of Germany, a bit less in the south. But it's cool to know :)

That feels nearly like a text made for a simutrans monument ...
