Well known dhokes are Tamma, Afghanabad, Dupri, Kund, Sahi, Khinger, Baral and Potha. Notable tribes in Pandori are Sarwani, Rajas, Mughals, Maliks Jats and Khans.

One of the famous villages is Dhok Tama, situated on Pandori link road near Pandori high school. Tama has 2 Sufi shrines, the most famous being Mian Budha Sab, near Pandori boys school. At this shrine celebrations are held annually lasting for 5 days. Dhok Tama is one of the earliest dhoks in Pandori, the inhabitants belong to the Tama clan of the Jat tribe. Their ancestor was the son of Dulma Khan, who migrated from Iran during the forced conversion to Shiite Islam. Inhabitants of this village used Khan in their names showing their close relation to the Jats of Iran. The Afghanabad is the most inhabited dhok of Pindori. The major tribe of Afghanabad is Sarwani. Afghanabad is surrounded by the dhok Nai Abadi, Mechine Mohala No. 1 and Dhok Shaikhupur.[3]
