according to persian historian firshta, ghurids were SuriAfghans. I need permission to add this info to article. below is the reference. 'In the following year AH 401 (AD 1010), Mahmood led his army towards Ghoor. The native prince of the country, Mahomed, of the Afghan tribe of Soor (the same race which gave birth to the dynasty that eventually succeeded in subverting the family of Sebüktigin), occupied an entrinched camp with 10,000 men. Mahmood was repulsed in repeated assaults which he made from morning till noon. Finding that the troops of Ghoor defended their entrenchments with such obstinacy, he caused his army to retreat in apparent confusion, in order to allure the enemy out of his fortified position. The Ghoorians, deceived by the stratagem, pursued the army of Ghizny; when the king, facing about, attacked and defeated them with great slaughter. Mahommed Soor, being made prisoner was brought to the king, but having taken poison, which he always kept under his ring, he died...
I've fully protected the article for 24 hours for all the edit warring shenanigans going on today between 13:56 and 16:57 (UTC). The main combatants, 126.96.36.199 (talk) and Tofaan (talk · contribs), have been blocked for 31 and 48 hours, respectively. Cut this shit out. Larry V (talk | email)18:31, 19 June 2011 (UTC) 1. After reading my own post, I guess that the page doesn't really have to be protected now, and I'm unprotecting it. But I still expect the shit to be cut out. Larry V (talk | email)18:34, 19 June 2011 (UTC) Thank you. I think this article can be formed much better. Some of the sources even contradicts with their own claims. For example the first book where it is claimed that Ghurids were of Afghan race. But if you read the same book and scroll a bit more down and read the reference you can clearly read that the reference does not support that claim. It is attested that the Ghurids´ sought their ancestory on Zahak, a mythological figure of one of the Persian myths a...
According to Nasir's latest edit, "...the book cited didn't even mention "Persianate" ...". Which is a lie. 1. This book, Objects of Translation: Material Culture and Medieval "Hindu-Muslim" Encounter, by Finbarr Barry Flood, p13; "Chapter 3 deals with the decades after 1150, when the rule of the Ghaznavid sultans was eclipsed by an obsure Persianate dynasty based in the remote moutainous region of Ghur in central Aghanistan. Previously vassals of the Ghaznavids, in the last decades of the twelfth century the Ghurids established a major transregional sultanate that conjoined the former territories of various Rajput kingdoms in northern India....". 2. Same book, "Despite formal affinities with Khurasani mosques, there is for example a notable dearth of Persianate elements in the Ghurid mosques of India.", p184. 3. Same book, "Ghurid monuments in Afghanistan and the Indus Valley conform to the Persianate norms, and are closely related to their Ghaznavid and Seljuq predecessors., p137....
The map used in the box is not only unsourced, but also totally wrong. It misses the important Indian territories and gives the wrong impression that the Ghurids ruled over much of modern Iran which is not true. The Ghurids had some influence in what is now eastern Iran, but their rule never reached Iraq. --Lysozym (talk) 12:07, 5 September 2012 (UTC) You are absolutely correct, I am going to work on it, and update it in the next months.

I'm adding this to the origins section:"The ethnic back-ground of the Ghurid people is shrouded in myth and legend. After the Saffarids invasions of Zamin-Dawar and Bust, the region became exposed to tribes of different ethnic backgrounds. Contact with Ghazna led to the infiltration of Turkish tribes from the surrounding areas. Later on, Ghuzz and Khalaj ethnic elements settled on the fringes of the region, gradually breaking its cultural isolation and diversifying its ethnic composition." Most modern historians refer to the Ghurids as either Afghans or Tajiks Others label them as ethnic Turks. Wikipedia must present all views, major and minor.BarryM9944 (talk) 15:47, 22 April 2013 (UTC) The map of the empire appearing in the infobox is exaggerted. This map () is more correct, it's from 'Historical Atlas of the Muslim Peoples', by R. Roolvink (Harvard University Press, 1957 BarryM9944 (talk) 15:54, 22 April 2013 (UTC) 1.

Please explain to me, Wario-Man, how adding neutral sources while not removing the part about Tajiks is "adding my own personal commentary". I stated what the sources say and then I mentioned the source, while you seem to keep on reverting it. You should not be able to decide which sources are shown and which are not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hayras123 (talk • contribs) 1. As Wario-Man mentioned in the edit summary, you added your personal commentary in this edit. 2. Regarding your this edit, World Heritage Encyclopedia and self.gutenberg.org copy from Wikipedia, and are not reliable sources. The book The Champions of the True Faith is self-published (Xlibris), and is not an acceptable source either.

@HistoryofIranIf you have reliable sources that Ghorid architecture originated from Iran then we can discuss it here before linking the article. Otherwise, I believe the article should not reference that page until the issue has been resolved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:39, 17 January 2019 (UTC) 1. You clearly don't know what Iranian means. --HistoryofIran (talk) 20:41, 17 January 2019 (UTC) 1. Here, the word "Iranian" does not mean "from modern Iran", rather, it's about the ethno-linguistic group known as "Iranian peoples".---Wikaviani (talk) (contribs)21:38, 17 January 2019 (UTC) @Wikiaviani. I'm sorry but who are you trying to fool here? That (poorly written and referenced) article linked is clearly about the architecture of Iran, not about architecture of Iranian peoples. Hence why it uses 'Persian architecture' as a synonym. Hence why structurally the reference point in the subheadings of the article are Iran/Persia. Hence why the sources cited...
The map shows that Bengal was part of the Ghurid empire. The conquests was lead by Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khalji, who then became its de facto ruler. Very confusing--184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:37, 5 May 2020 (UTC)Brother USaamo, tell him again that without language and culture he is nothing but a pathan of patna !!!! He himself told us that great Ghaljis ancestor was a Ghori-Tajik then where there paternal line goes !!! That all shows us the importance of Culture language custom and tell him if he remain wants to be Abdali then he should get his language back first or will left behind nothing for his offsprings.
Chartaqi was a prominent element in Iranian architecture, having various functions and used in both secular and religious contexts for 1,500 years, with the first instance apparently being developed in the Sasanian city of Gor (Firuzabad) in 210s AD by King Ardashir I. The biggest instance of chahartaq is that of the so-called Palace of Shapur ...
