The Malhi is a Jat gotra from Punjab. Earlier based in the region around Sialkot (now in West Punjab, Pakistan), the Malhis were often wealthy landlords living in North-East Punjab.
In ancient Sanskrit the word Malhi is usually used to represent the King of the Aryans. Originally during their beginings Malhi found Multan-Jailsmer-Abohar region like many other Punjabi Jat clans of this time period. The Malhis origin can go back probably before or during the founding of Multan, the oldest city in Punjab. In fact, the name of Multan itself may have been derived from the Malhi. It is theorized Multan name was actually Malhistan and later over a long period of time transformed into Multan.Some kings of the Rajputana states also called themselves such as the Rajputana state of Sroba.
Before the arrival of Alexander the Great Malhis, controlled the city of Multan and the areas around it and into to the Malwa region of Rahjastan.
