Maheshvara

Maheshvara (Sanskrit: महेश्वर , Bengali: মহেশ্বর ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 607 CE in Jambusara near Bharuch in Gujarat. He was of Kaushika Gotra and belonged to the Vajasaneya Vedic school.

In 640 CE, his son Sangaravi (Sanskrit: संगरवि , Bengali: সংগরবি ) migrated from Jambusara near Bharuch in Gujarat to a village Navagramaka in Mandsaur in Western Malwa (western Madhya Pradesh). This is recorded in the 640 AD Nogawa Plates of Dharasena II Baladitya of the Maitrakas of Vallabhi who was a contemporary of Gurjara Dadda II and ruled in the Broach or Bharuch region of Gujarat.
