History of Maken

Originally Maken came from another village called Kot Bhai Khane da. The Maken people like Subedar Maken, Dhaleke Maken, Saleh Numberdar Maken got a lot of land at this place and settled here and the village was named Maken. As at that time there was no security and many times they were lotted from thieves and robbers. So for their security they brought other casts like Bhatti from Pindi-Bhattian and Gondal from Kot Moumman. And Makens then gave some lands to these people (Bhatti and Gondal). Since then this village has 3 main casts in the village , Maken, Bhatti, Gondal. There lived also some other casts like Muuchi, Tarkan (Mughal) etc.
