Cheti Chand marks the birth anniversary of Saint Jhulelal, also known as Uderolal. He is believed to have been sent by Lord Varuna to save the people of Sindh from the tyrannical Muslim ruler Mirkhshah. He is revered by the Hindus and Muslims who once resided in Sindh Province with great fervour and dedication. While the Hindus know and pray to him as Jhulelal, with multiple temples dedicated to the saint having been erected across the country, Sufi Muslims of Sindh, recognise him as "Khwaja Khizir" or "Sheikh Tahit".
