A guz ( Persian: , Hindi: }) or Mughul yard, also written as gaz, guzz, guj, huj or gudge, is a unit of length used in parts of Asia. Historically, it was a regionally variable measurement, similar to the English yard both in size and in that it was often used for measuring textiles. Values of the guz ranged from 24 inches to 41 inches over time. Today, it is generally used in the Indian subcontinent as the word for a "yard". A present day sari is still measured as 7 huj while a traditional one can be as long as 9 huj.
