It is said that the when he was a child, his cradle (swing) rocked itself to lull him to sleep, earning him the name Jhulelal - The Lord of the Swing.
Jhulelal is traditionally believed to have performed several miracles, typically centered around the Indus River, which Hindus consider to be his abode. In the most common form, Jhulelal is represented as a bearded man sitting cross-legged on a lotus flower that rests on a palla fish (a large salmon indigenous to the Sindhu river). The fish is seen floating on the Sindhu river. He holds a sacred text and wears a golden crown with a feather and wears regal clothes. Generally, temple idols represent him in this form.
