Shwe Sitthin (Burmese: ရွှေစစ်သင်, lit. "Golden Warrior"; also called as Myin Phyu Shin Nat; lit. "Lord of White Horse") is one of 37 recognized in the Burmese pantheon of nat. He was a royal pince of Pagan, a son of King Saw Mon Nit, the last king of the Pagan dynasty. His mother is Medaw Shwezaga, one of the 37 nats.

He died after his father imprisoned him for neglecting his duties and playing while going to war. In iconography, he is usually portrayed in a seated pose, wearing a chadah-style golden crown and holding a sword by its hilt, upright in his hand.[1]
