The oldest examples of a tandoor were found in the Harappa and Mohenjo Daro settlements of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization, though earlier Tandoor type ovens have been recovered in early-Harappan contexts on the Makran coast, including the mound site of Balakot. In Sanskrit, the tandoor was referred to as kandu. The word tandoor comes from the Dari words tand?r and tann?r; these are derived from very similar terms, viz. Persian tan?r , Arabic tand?r, Turkish Tand?r, Azeri tandir and Kurdish tend?r (which all have the same meaning as explained in the article). However, according to Dehkhoda Persian Dictionary the word originates from Akkadian tin?ru, and is mentioned as early as in the Akkadian Epic of Gilgames (reflexes of which are Avestan tan?ra and Pahlavi tan?r). As such, the tandoor may not be of Semitic or Iranian origin altogether, dating back as it does to periods before the
migration of Aryan and Semitic people to the Iranian plateau and Mesopotamia.
