The Sulaiman Beg sub-district lies south of the Tuz Khurmatli (variants: Dooz-Khurmatu, Toozkhoormatoo-Bayat) district on the main Kirkuk-Dooz-Hamreen-Baghdad road. The Amirli [variants: A'mirli, Aamerli] sub-district was created later, and is close to the same road between Sulaiman Beg and the Hamreen mountains. Members of the Mongol tribe of Bayat (originally called Piawoot), live in its villages, most of whom were Arabized through mixing with the incoming Arab tribes from southern Iraq. The Hamreen mountain range, which forms the natural border of Kurdistan in the south, runs south of A'mirli sub-district.
