Set between the Vindhayas in the north, the Satpuras in the south and the Narmada lapping at its ghats, Mandhata Omkareshwar is one of the most unique pilgrimage sites in India. It is said that the island has a shape of the Hindu religious symbol of 'Om'. It is home to significant Hindu temples that welcome Shiva devotees from all over the world.
Sheltering the Omkareshwar and the Amaleshwarar temples, Omkareshwar is the shrine of Lord Shiva. The Omkareshwar temple, from which the island derives its name, is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Shivalinga at this temple is believed to be ‘swayambhu’ (deriving power or Shakti from within) and is one of the 12 found in India. It is also referred to as a jyotirlinga. The jyotirlinga is said to be split into two that are known by the name of Omkareshwarar and Amaleshwarar. This place has immense spiritual and religious significance in Hinduism.

An island and a hillock, a bustling bazaar for locals, a cheap getaway for foreign tourists, a religious experience for the masses and an exploitable dam site for the authorities, a repository of ancient sculptural treasures and a place that has “lost its soul with modernisation” as a priest says, a holy river and some dirty and dammed water… But since all of this is contained in pretty much 6-by-1 km of an island, it’s easy to explore and provides some unexpectedly rewarding moments.
