On the banks of Narmada

Omkareshwar is one of the 12 jyotirlings of Shiva. You can stay at Narmada resort, the MP tourism hotel. It's quite homely. You can then take a boat from the ghats and hope across to the Omkareshwar temple for darshan. If you go up for a chopper ride you can see the Narmada form an OM. The whole place has an old world charm.

Omkareshwar Overview

Omkareshwar, one of the holy sites, is located in the Khandwa District of Madhya Pradesh. The pilgrimage of religious significance is counted among one of the twelve sacred Jyotirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva. This Hindu religious centre is situated on the small island of Mandhata in the River Narmada.

The excavations in the tributary of Narmada date the history of Omkareshwar back to Paleolithic Age. The island of Mandhata is believed to have been ruled by the Haihaya king, Mahishmant. He named the island as Mahishmati. The region has witnessed the rule of various dynasties namely, Mauryas, Sungas, Abhiras, Vakatakas, Imperial Guptas, Kalchuris, Vardhanas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Paramaras and Faruki.

From 1536-1632, the destination was under the rule of the Mughal Empire. Omkareshwar also contributed in the Freedom Movement, Non-Cooperation Movement, Civil Disobedience Movement and Quit India Movement.

The shape of the Mandhata Island is identical to the Om symbol. Situated at the confluence of rivers Narmada and Kaveri, the town has two chief shrines of Lord Shiva that have significant religious importance. One of the shrines is known as Omkareshwar whereas, the other is known as Amareshwar.

A dip in the confluence of Kaveri and Narmada is considered to be of religious significance, which appears in the form of Om symbol. Along with religious importance, the place provides beautiful views of peaks divided by a gorge. Streams, mountain ranges and a peaceful environment make Omkareshwar ideal for solitude seekers.

The religious site of Omkareshwar is situated at a distance of 20 km from Mortakka in Madhya Pradesh, which is well connected with air, rail and road transport. The closest airbase to the town is at Indore, which is situated at a distance of 77 km. Besides, Omkareshwar Railway Station is located at a distance of 12 km. Omkareshwar can also be reached by buses from Khandwa, Ujjain, Indore and Delhi.

Situated on the river banks, the climatic conditions in Omkareshwar remain pleasant and favourable during October to March. The best time to visit the destination is during the festival of Maha Shivaratri between February and March.
