Saidpur is the one of the oldest village of Pakistan located in the Margallah hills overlooking Islamabad. Saidpur is about 4 or 5 hundred years old with a history, heritage and of course its own myths and folklore. Built along the slope of the hills, and gradually creeping upwards, the village presents a picturesque view, particularly in the soft light of morning or afternoon sun.
Saidpur is named after Said Khan, the son of Sultan Sarang Khan, the Gakhar chief of the Potohar region during Emperor Baburs time. Emperor Jahangirs memoir, Tuzke Jahangiri, mentions Jahangir halting at a place beyond Rawalpindi, on his way to Kabul.
