Manohar Das, also simply Manohar or Manuhar, (active 1582–1624) was an Indian Hindu painter in the Mughal style.

Manohar's father Basawan was a master painter in the Mughal emperor's court, where Manohar grew up, his father most likely instructed him, and later Manohar became a court painter as well. His earliest works were painted for Akbar, and then later he was in the service of Akbar's son and successor Jahangir.[1] Manohar's works frequently depicted the royal families and life at court, some of his works can be found at the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.[2]
