 Omkareshwar located in the state of Madhya Pradesh is one of the prime pilgrimage centre for the Hindus and is famed for housing one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temples are named Jyotirlanga as there is a strong belief by the people that the revered Shiva gave darshan to his faithful devotees in the form of  light.   

 This temple island looks stunning amidst the exquisite scenic locale.
