Sailana State was a princely state in India during the British Raj[1] with an area of 769 km². It belonged to the Malwa Agency, part of Central India Agency. The state flag was a red triangle.


Sailana State was founded by Jai Singh, great-grandson of Ratan Singh, founder of Ratlam State in 1736. Initially his capital was at Raoti. He built Sailana city as his new capital in 1736.[1] On 5 January 1819 Shailana State became a British protectorate. Its last ruler signed the accession to the Indian Union on 15 June 1948.[2]


The rulers of Sailana State were Rathore Rajputs.
