Crystals of sodium doped lanthanum orthomanganites were grown for the first time in sodium chloride flux at 900°C. 0.5 to 0.1mm size crystals were isolated. Composition of the oxide, $La_{0.82}Na_{0.13}MnO_{2.93}$ was arrived at by chemical analysis of the elements present. Single crystal X-ray structural study showed that the lanthanum as well as oxygen site deficient orthomanganites crystallize in $R3^-$ space group unlike many divalent cation doped lanthanum orthomanganites which crystallize in $R3^-$.
