The Qalandar are a tribe of Hazara found in Afghanistan. Maitland identifies the Qalandar as falling within a similar area as the Jaghori Hazaras (Ghazni Province and the upper Arghandab Valley), but "not directly affiliated" and of different origin. The Qalandar are believed to be late-19th century refugees from Dai Chopan and Arjestan.[1]
