Talpur (Balochi: بلوچ, Sindhi: سنڌي ) is a Sindhi speaking Baloch tribe of Hoth Baloch Branch [1][2] settled in Sindh Punjab and Balochistan in Pakistan.

The Talpur Baloch soon gained power and overthrew the Kalhora after the Battle of Halani. Peace between the two warring tribes was soon established after the Mughal Emperor Akbar Shah II issued a Firman in the year 1783, which designated Mir Fateh Ali Khan Talpur as the new Nawab of Sindh. This brought an end to the ferocious fighting and the defeat of the ruling Kalhora by the Talpur tribes.[3]
