According to their traditions, their ancestor was a mythical fairy by the name of Punj Phulan Rani, who lived on a flower. She gave birth to a baby boy, and a tiger came and gave the young baby his blessings, saying he would not be defeated by anyone. The young boy became known as Sahota, and the tiger was adopted as their totem.
They are also known as an Akbari tribe, and in Hoshiarpur were masters of their own principality. Hoshiarpur remains a stronghold of the tribe.
In Pakistan, they are found among both the Punjabi speaking Jats of Central Punjab, as well as the Seraiki speaking tribes of southern Punjab, where they own several villages near the town of Rajanpur.
