The Tombs of Talpur Mirs (also referred to as Cubbas) are a collection of tombs, located in the neighbourhood of Hirabad in the city of Hyderabad, in present day southern Pakistan.

The tombs are of the ruling Talpur Mirs of Sindh. The Talpur Mirs ruled the region from 1784 to 1843.

Preservation[edit]

All the tombs of Talpur Mirs are enclosed in an area preserved by the city municipality to promote them as a tourist attraction.

Although the city municipality has taken measures to preserve, maintain, and promote these tombs, there are preservation concerns.
