Enjoy tranquility of a sanctuary built over a pool at Omkareshwara Temple, a small Hindu temple built on the banks of Narmada River. Originally built in mid-18th century, the current structure has a mixture of neo-Gothic and an Islamic-style with a gilt dome surrounded by four turrets resembling minarets with the main building painted white with stark red lining. One of the 12 revered Jyotirling temples, this place is a popular pilgrimage site. A pool behind the temple, abundant with fish and frequented by ducks and herons, make this place a good spot for family visit.
