Sadh Belo (Urdu: سادھ بھيلو,Sindhi: ساڌ ٻيلو), or Sat, is an island in the Indus River near Sukkur, Sindh, Pakistan that is famous for its highly revered Dharmic shrines. The temples are associated with the syncretic Udasi movement, which had and maintains close associations with Sikhism.
During the Arab conquest of Sindh under Muhammad bin Qasim, the island was occupied by an Arab commander named "Saeed" (Arabic: سعید). His platoon eventually was stationed on the island, and the island was named as Sadh Belo, or "Saeed's Island" in his honour.
Sadh Belo island is downstream from Bukkur island, and is separated from it by a short stretch of river. The island with its two inlets, Sadh Belo and Din Belo, is shown on the official map of 1893-4; in 1912 it was accurately surveyed on the orders of the Collector.
There is a Hindu temple on the island, founded in 1823 by Baba Bankhandi Maharaj, who had immigrated from Nepal. The place is held in high esteem by Hindus throughout Sindh and even in India, occasionally attracting pilgrims from across the border. The annual death anniversary of Baba Bankhandi Maharaj, analogous to the Sufi urs, is celebrated by a three-day festival in which pilgrims are provided with free lodging, food, and water. It is under the custody of Evacuee Property Trust Board.
