Mahn Win Maung (Burmese: မန်းဝင်းမောင်, pronounced [máɴ wɪ́ɴ màuɴ]; 17 April 1916 – 4 July 1989) was the third president of Union of Burma (Myanmar). He was appointed president by Prime Minister U Nu in March 1957. He served for five years until 2 March 1962, when General Ne Win's military coup d'état ousted Nu's government.


Win Maung was an ethnic Karen born on 17 April 1916 in the Irrawaddy delta, son of Daw Tharya and U Shwe Yin. He graduated with a B.A. from Yangon University's Judson College in 1937. Between 1947 and 1956 he was variously Minister of Ministry of Mining and Labour, Minister of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunication and Minister of the Ministry of Water, Air and Costal Ship. He was imprisoned between 1962 to 1967.
