Midhan (मिढाण) (Meedhan) is a gotra of Jats. [1] Midhan clan is found in Gurjars also. [2]



Ram Sarup Joon[4] writes....According to the Puranas and Mahabharata, King Yayati chose his second son Puru as heir to the throne. This branch, therefore, continued to stay in the same area and ruled Hardwar, Hastinapur and Delhi. King Hasti made Hastinapur and Pandavas Indraprastha as their capital. Porus who fought Alexander belonged to this branch, Poruswal, Phalaswal,Mirhan, Mudgil, Gill and a number of other Jat gotras are of the Puru branch.

Ram Swarup Joon states that Raja Vir Bhadra was the ruler of the area known as Shiv Ki Jata. He was of Puru Vansh and ancestor of seven Jat gotras. In the same dynasty, the Jat gotras Midh, Midhan, Mel and Ajmel claim their descent from Raja Hasti of Hastinapur. [5]

Ram Swarup Joon[6] writes that ...King Hasti who founded Hastinapur had three son's -Ajmirh, Devmirh and Purmirh. According to the Mejmaul ul Tawarikh, in the age of Duryodhana these people had settled down in the basin of the Indus River and were called Jatt.

The Mirh Jats are found in large numbers in the Western Punjab in Pakistan. In ancient times the Mirhs migrated, to Arabia, Syria and Baluchistan. References to the Mirh tribe are found through out Asia.

The Nawab of Karnal belonged to Midhan gotra.

Madhian, Mandan, Mandh and Mandhal are derivatives of the same gotra. They are found in large numbers in the districts of Jhang, Multan, Dera Ghazikhan, Muzaffargarh, Mainwali, Shahpur and Jhelum.

The Madha gotra is also found among the Rajputs, and they have 20 villages near Delhi and some in district Moradabad.

According to Ram Swarup Joon [7]about 70 Jat Gotras joined the Gujar force and started calling themselves Gujars. Midhan was included in it.
