Bahu Akbar Pur (Badi Bahu) बहू अकबरपुर (बड़ी बहू) is 700 year old village. The population of the village is 15,000(appr.).The longitude and latitude is 28*54'39" north and 76*28'36" east District Rohtak in Haryana. The village is 10 k.m.away from Rohtak on NH-10.
Native villagers tell that earlier the name of this village was Bhau Akbarpur (भाऊ अकबरपुर) which, later due to tongue-twisting, started to be pronunciated as Bahu Akbarpur.
According to one legend the village was founded by three brothers(sons of Ch.GusaaI Balhara ).When they reached this place on one fine day, the wife of the younger brother asked her son to tell his tau to unload his belongings some further away otherwise it will get crowded. The JAT got the message and started again. He stopped at Neemsera (Delhi)and sent back the message that"if it is still crowded I will go further. The village got its present name because it got divided between two brothers Akbar and Jamal some 150 years back for tax collocation. So bada gaon got the name of Bhau Akbarpur and chota gaon Bhau Jamalpur.
