Omkareshwar

Omkareshwar

Map
, 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.
