Nyaung-u Sawrahan (Burmese: ညောင်ဦး စောရဟန်း, pronounced [ɲàuɴ ʔú sɔ́jəháɴ]; c. 914–992) was a king of the Pagan dynasty of Burma (Myanmar). Although Burmese chronicles state that he reigned from 931 to 964, his actual reign, deduced from King Anawrahta's year of ascension, 1044, was likely between 959 and 992. (Much of the information given in Burmese chronicles prior to Anawrahta's reign are unreliable or legendary.)

According to the legend, Nyaung-u Sawrahan, also known as Taungthugyi, usurped the throne from the previous king, Theinhko. Once a farmer, Nyaung-u killed Theinhko when he stole a cucumber from his field. Nyaung-u Sawrahan was accepted as king by the queen to prevent unrest in the kingdom and became known as Taungthugyi Min (Cucumber King or Farmer King; တောင်သူကြီးမင်း).[2] There is a similar story in Cambodian history and both stories may be mythical.

Nyaung-u Sawrahan reigned for 33 years and was overthrown by Kunhsaw Kyaunghpyu, who in turn was overthrown by Nyaung-u's sons Kyiso and Sokkate.
