  • There are two ways you can visit the temple, by boat or by foot (suspension bridge). I'd recommend everyone to go through the boat, that way you get to enjoy both the scenic view of the island (and take a dip in the river, if you're looking forward to) and visit other temples along side the bridge on return. We chose to visit the Jyotirlinga during off-season so as to avoid crowd and enjoy the trip calmly, I'd suggest you do the same!
  • 4th joyatiling omkaraswar tample in my India,,
  • Omkareshwar temple is dedicated to God Shiva. It is fourth one of the 12 revered Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva. It is on an island called Mandhata or Shivapuri in the Narmada river; the shape of the island is said to be like ॐ symbol. There are two temples here, one to Omkareshwar (whose name means "Lord of Omkaara) and one to Amareshwar (whose name means "Immortal lord" or "lord of the Immortals or Devas"). Omkareshwar is formed by the sacred river Narmada. This is one of the most sacred of rivers in India and is now home to one of the world's biggest dam projects. There are regular bus services from Ujjain (133 km), Indore (77 km), Khandwa (61 km.) and Omkareshwar Road (12 km). By bus, it takes 2.5 hrs from Khandwa railway station to Omkareshwar.
  • Shri Omkareshwar Temple is one of the Word Famous 12 Jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva. This Jyotirlinga is second in Madhya Pradesh after Shri Mahakaal Temple in Ujjain.
  • Natural Beauty is Awesome!!
