Durbar

 

(also darbar), in medieval Muslim states the term denoted both a council of notables under a monarch and a formal reception. In the latter sense the word was widely used in colonial India; durbars were held by the viceroy of India and by provincial governors. In Afghanistan in the early 20th century the word was used in both senses. In present-day Iran there is a darbar-shah court.

durbar
