Before the invasion of Mahmud Ghaznavi, Uchh was a province of Sindh and was ruled by Hindus.

From the time of Mahmud Ghaznavi, Islamic sciences came here. Maulana Safi-ud-Din Gazroni came in 1908. Here he founded an Islamic seminary, in which two and a half thousand students were studying at the same time. Sultan Shahabuddin Ghauri was the first coach of this institution.
