During the third week of Jan I was in Madhya Pradesh. So, how could I not visit Omkareshwar. Omkareshwar temple is one of the 12 Jyothirlings in india. I also visited the sacred city of Ujjain where another jyothirling MahaKaleshwar resides. Omkareshwar is situatuted on the bank of rivers Narmada and Kaveri. Omkareshwar is situated at the meeting point of rivers Kaveri and Narmada. A meeting point of Rivers is considered a holy place by Hindus. Omkareshwar temple is situated on an island which is in the shape of the word ‘Om’ in Sanskrit.

Omkareshwar is 77km(48 miles) from Indore. Also, Omkareshwar Road is the nearest railway station, Omkareshwar is 12km( 7miles)from this station. You can stay in Indore and hire a taxi to come here. There are very few hotels here, and they are not so good.

Here are some photographs from my camera

The following pictures are from Mamleshwar. Mamleshwar is situated on the bank of Narmada river exactly opposite to the Omkareshwar temple. These temples were constructed a long time back. I can tell this based on the design :) . There are Shiva Lings in these temples. However, these are being neglected by the ASI( Archeological Survey of India)
