After Jam Unar died in prison, Allauddin Khilji called Jam Unar’s son, Prince Jam Khairuddin alias Jam Tamachi, and ordered him to disband immediately and take over the rule of Sindh in addition to his tribe’s chiefship. Jam Tamachi cemented his dominance over Sindh after returning to Bhakkhar. One day, while staying in Thatta, he was walking in a boat on Lake keenjhar when he accidentally saw Noori. Seeing her beautiful face, he became mad at her at first sight, and on the same day, he went back to Bhakkhar. When he came to his palace and lay down on the bed, Noori’s beautiful eyes and charming face robbed him peace and tranquility. Eventually, Jam Tamachi decided that he would marry Noori. Her interlocutors and close associates tried hard to convince him, not to marry Noori. But caste and Noori’s low standard, had no place in front of Noori’s beauty. Jam Tamachi summoned Noori’s relatives to his palace and asked for Noori’s relationship. Noori’s relatives immediately agreed, considering the king’s son-in-law as their fortune. In return, in the past, the tax collected from fishermen by this place was waived by the order of Jam Tamachi, after which the days of the poor fishermen returned and they began to live a life of peace and tranquility.

The wedding date was fixed and on the appointed day, Noori came to the palace as the queen of Jam Tamachi. After the marriage, she found out that the king was married and he already had seven wives in the palace. Jam Tamachi ordered all wives to obey and submit, which became obligatory of Noori. But after that, all wives became jealous of Noori and started looking for ways to harm her and bring her down from the king’s sight. On the other hand, the king’s courtiers and palace servants also refused to accept her as queen just because she was the daughter of a poor fisherman. Jam Tamachi, while expressing his displeasure over this, not only paid homage to Noori in the palace but also introduced her to the Jam Tamachi, while expressing his displeasure over this, not only paid homage to Noori in the palace but also introduced her to the people of Thatta as the “Maharani” of the Sama family.

One day the courtiers and the big ladies told Jam Tamachi that every third day Noori’s brother comes to the palace, and she fills the wooden box with jewels and money. The king was shocked to hear this and temporarily became suspicious of the new queen. Instead of relying on the servants or the courtiers, when she investigated the allegation herself, she found that Noori did not like the food of the palace, whereas before marriage she used to eat fish and its bones. Her brother brings fish and bones for her. in a wooden box, which she eats and returns. The king was greatly disturbed by the lying of his wives, and the love of Noori grew in his heart more than ever. But Noori was so shocked that she survived for a short time after the incident.
