Naueshwer a name among the Hindls for a subordinate incarnation of their god Vishnu (q.v.), described as having taken place at Alemdy, near Poonah, about, as some state, 700, or, according to others, 200 years ago. Naueshwer is stated to have been a religious ascetic, and to have been buried alive at Alemdy, where his tomb is seen under a splendid temple, and where he yet appears (for, although buried, he is not dead) to pious, if at the same time wealthy visitors. See Coleman, Mythology of the Hindus, page 390.
