Talpur (Sindhi: ٽالپور) (Urdu: تالپور) is a Baloch tribe and is settled in Sindh and Punjab provinces of Pakistan. They are descendants of Mir Jalal Khan and originally belong to the Hoth Balochs branch of Mir Jalal Khan's descendants. They lived in Balochistan from where they migrated to present day Punjab's Dera Ghazi Khan area. Kalhora rulers of Sindh invited them to migrate to Sindh and help them overcome unruly Baloch tribes living in Sindh. Talpur dynasty conquered and ruled Sindh, and other parts of present-day Pakistan, from 1783 to 1843.
