The city of Sialkot is believed to have been founded by one Raja
Sul or Sala , the uncle of Pandhavas, whose heroic deeds are
recorded in the epic Mahabharta. After his death some 5000 years
ago, there is a tradition that the dynasity continued for some
1500 years and then the country was flooded and remained one
vast uninhabited region for about 1000 years. The popular belief
is that it was re-founded in the reign of
Vikramaditya of Ujjain by Raja Sáliváhan or Sálbán, who built
the fort and city and gave the place its present name. He was of
Sia caste, and it is believed that the word "Sialkot" means 'the
fort of Sia'. Legend also says the Salivahan had two sons; one
Puran by name , was killed by the instrumentality of a wicked
step-mother, and thrown inot a well, still the resort of
pilgrims near Sialkot , called "Puran ka Kunwna", the well of
Puran. (A Mohalla in the city is also named "Puran Nagar") Other
son of Salivahan , Rasalu, became involved in wars with Raja
Hudi, popularly stated to have been a Gakkhar chieftain. Being
worsted in battle, Rasalu, as the price for piece, was forced to
give his daughter in marriage to his conqueror, who gave the
territory he had conquered to Rasalu's adopted son.
