                                                  OMKARESHWAR

 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. Omkareshwar consist of two giant Vindhya and Satpura mountains and a spectacular deep gorge where silent waters of river Narmada flows gorgeously. The valley divides the hills so sensationally that the spectator looking down will get an illusion of witnessing the Hindu symbol ‘OM’. Hence Omkareshwar gets its name. Amareshwar is also a prime devotional centre where pilgrims from many places flock in large numbers to seek the blessings of the Lord.

 The presence of the lovely shrines in the majestic environ is a breath taking site that allures the onlooker with its exquisite charm and prettiness. Devotees must visit the lovely temples of Omkareshwar located on the breath-taking natural setting and spend some time in tranquillity.
