Omkareshwar

Madhya Pradesh, India

This sacred island in the Narmada River 34 miles upstream from the Ahilya Fort is the site of an important Shiva temple, the Mandhatta Jyotirling, and is close to a center of Shiva lingam manufacturing. It is also a gathering place for the wandering mendicants known as sadhus. The best way to reach Omkareshwar is by boat, but be forewarned: it's a slow boat - eight hours one way.
