Introduction to Talpurs

Talpur (Balochi: تالپور ) is a Sindhi speaking Baloch tribe settled in Sindh, Punjab, and Balochistan in Pakistan. The tribe established the Talpur dynasty, which ruled between 1783-1843, while a branch of the dynasty ruled until 1955 as the Khairpur princely state.

The Talpur Baloch served as soldiers of the Kalhora dynasty but took over the reins of the governance at the Battle of Halani after the Kalhoras assassinated a Talpur Chief. Talpur rule over Sindh was established in 1783, with His Highness Mir Fateh Ali Khan Talpur as the new Amir. This brought an end to the ferocious fighting and the defeat of the ruling Kalhora by the Talpur tribes.
