Multhan is a town and former Rajput jagir and (feudatory) non-salute princely state held from Dhar State.

History

On 13 October 1657, Multhan was founded as an independent jagir, it was given to a younger son of Maharaja Ratan Singh of Ratlam. Multhan was later annexed by Dhar and was held as a thakorate. raja Dalpat Singh did not have any surviving heir and adopted a younger son of the Sailana Raja. The rulers of Sailana were a younger branch of Ratlam and thus from the same dynasty.

During British Raj, the estate consisted of 29 villages in the Badnawar pargana. The chief, raja Bharat Singh, who was born in 1893 and succeeded on adoption in 1901, was the second son of H.H. Raja Sir Jaswant Singh Bahadur of Sailana State. He was a Ratansinghot Rathor Rajput. The residence of the chief is the town of Multhan, situated on the Ratlam river, on the Dhar road 5 miles from Badnawar and 26 miles from Dhar city. Area 99 square miles. Population was 11,804 in 1931.

Sandla was a thikana of Multhan, also Rajput-held.

During the British raj (from 10 January 1819 in Dhar), Multhan was in the indirect rule sway of the colonial Bhopawar Agency until that merged into the Central India Agency.
