Natho Faqir Lund an octogenarian custodian of the shrine says that Kalhora ruler Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhorro had some spiritual attachment with Yousuf Faqir and built his mausoleum on state expenses. The ancient tomb caved in about a decade ago. Tomb was subsequently rebuilt by the custodian Natho Faqir. Also buried in the mausoleum is Tagio Faqir, brother of Yousuf Faqir.
