This article is about the Punjabi community. For other uses, see Tarkan.

The Tarkhan are a community commonly found in the Punjab regions of India and Pakistan. They are traditionally carpenters by occupation.[1] However, association with carpentry has been found to be overstated as a large majority of Tarkhans residing in the Punjab are known to be landowning farmers.[citation needed]
