Shadaram Birth Anniversary at Shadani Darbar in Ghotki in Sindh in Pakistan

Shadaram birth anniversary is annually held in Paush month (December – January) at the famous Shadani Darbar in Ghotki in Sindh in Pakistan. Shadaram is believed to be a manifestation of Hindu God Shiva. It is the 317th birth anniversary of Holy saint Shadaram in 2025.

Legend has it that According to the legend, Ghulam Shah Kalhoro, the ruler of Sindh, intimidated Hindus in 1700. Perturbed by his actions, Hindus prayed to Shiva at Mathelo. One night the Sarpanch of the area saw Shiva in his dream. Shiva told him that he had taken birth in the form of Shadaram in Lahore and would come to Mathelo for their salvation.

Shri Shadaram came to Mathelo in 1768 and called forth Dhuni Saheb there. When Kalhoro insulted a Hindu widow, Shri Shadaram cursed the ruler, saying that Kalhoro would lose the kingdom.

Shri Shadaram’s words came true and Kalhoro lost his kingdom and died in misery.

After that Shadaram shifted to Hayat Pitafi and laid the foundation of the Shadani Darbar.

Hindus from India sometimes get permission to participate in the Shadani Darbar at Hayat Pitafi in Ghotki in Sindh in Pakistan.
