The Talpur dynasty (Urdu: سلسله تالپور‎) (Sindhi: ٽالپردور‎) was a dynasty of the Talpur tribe that conquered and ruled Sindh, and other parts of present-day Pakistan, from 1783 to 1843.[1] The Talpur army defeated the Kalhora Dynasty in the Battle of Halani in 1783 to become rulers of Sindh. The Talpur dynasty was defeated by the British invaders in 1843 at the Battle of Miani.
