The Hindus of that area whorshiped in the Temple of “Lord Shiva” at Mathelo and prayed to him to save them from the cruelty of Ghulam Shah Kalhoro. One night the Sarpanch got a dream and was told by Bhagwan Shiva that he had already taken birth in the name of Shadaram in Lohana Khatri Family, at Lahore Punjab and would come to Mathelo for thier salvation and satisfaction.

Sant Shadaram Sahib took birth in Lohana family ascending to the dynasty of Raja Lav in Lahore in October 1708. Lahore state is established by Maharaj Lav, who is elder son of Bhagwan Shri Ram. Lahore state was established on the bank of Ravi river.
