According to legend, Sakhi Bodla Behar Sikandar, a disciple of the great 13th century saint, Lal Shahbaz Qalandar (Sayed Muhammed Usman Marwandi), was put to death by the people of this village. Upon hearing the news, the saint turned his hand - and the city was uprooted and turned upside down. To date, the ruins of the old city are visible beneath later settlements. It is customary for pilgrims to pay respects to Sakhi Bodla Behar Sikandar after making a pilgrimage to the shrine of his master in nearby Sehwan.
