One story about the leader of the city Rai Kalha III, the Muslim Rajput chief of Raikot, says that he once had the opportunity to offer his hospitality to Guru Gobind Singh, the founder of Sikhism, in 1705, at the risk of losing everything, including his life and that of his family. In appreciation and gratitude,Guru Gobind Singh gave him a Ganga Sagar, a sword, and a wooden rehel (used for reading religious scriptures) as personal gifts for his brevity and courage.[see References- Kalha Rai]
