Dalola is named after Sikh which indicates Sikh presence in the area during early 19th century. However their presence was nominal as all the surrounding hills were occupied by Muslim tribes. When Sikh lost their territories all our Hazara and Punjab during Anglo Sikh war (1845-46) they were either killed by hill tribes or narrowly escaped from their persecution. These tribes captured and divided lands among themselves and which they still hold. During British rule the area remain semi independent paying revenue like rest of Hazara tribes and despite many attempts by Khan of Garhi and Sultan of Boi to capture Dalola, it was never subdued or came under their influence.
