  2. Tibi Gorian Mughlan
    Village Tibi Gorian Mughlan, 1 mile west of present-day Gujrat City traces back its history and name from a Great Mughal, Amir Taimoor Gorgan, (Timor Gorgan/ Tamerlane 1336-1405 AD) whose armies camped here when he conquered India. Originally it was TIBI (small hill) GORGAN MUGHLAN and later TIBI GORIAN MUGHLAN. There are many places and villages of the same name viz. Tibi Gorian Mughlan/ Tibi Gorgan Mughlan throughout India and Pakistan, where Taimoor Gorgan,s armies camped or fought against Tughlaq King of Hindustan ( India).

    Village Maral is a separate village from Tibi Gorian Mughlan and is named after a Bloch tribe which came to the area when the exiled Mughal King Humayun(1508- 1556 AD) returned from Iran to India with the help of the Maral Bloch tribe. A big name in Tibi Gorian Mughlan's present history is Mirza Hakim Beg Barlas known as Darogha Sahib. He was a big gun in British India and later in Pakistan.
