MĪHĀṄ SIṄGH (d. 1841), Sikh governor of Kashmīr from 1834 to 1841. He had taken part in numerous military operations under Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh and his successors. As governor of Kashmīr, he ordered a free assessment of the land in the province. He also had his Tarīkh-i-Kashmīr, which was also a document of much historical and economic importance, compiled. Soon after Mahārājā Sher Siṅgh's accession, two battalions of the Sikh army in Kashmīr revolted and on 17 April 1841 assassinated Mīhāṅ Siṅgh at his residence in Srīnagar.
