Omkareshwar Amaleshwar

These 2 Jyotirlings of Shiv are combined and treated as 1. Of these Jyotirlings situated in the Malwa region of Western Madhya Pradesh, one of them called Omkareshwar is on Mandhata island (in the midst of Narmada River), and the other called Amaleshwar is on the mainland on the banks of Narmada.

The Narmada River gives an Om shape to the Mandhata Island, which is why this place is called Omkareshwar.

This Narmada region is a place of Brahma and Vishnu besides Shiv. The 3 hills, Brahmapuri, Vishnupuri, and Rudrapuri, are considered as the place of these 3 Gods.

The controversial Omkareshwar dam which has resulted in the Narmada Bachao agitation has made this place a topic of discussion these days. The dam is being built 9 km above the temple.

The Omkareshwar and Amaleshwar region is in the midst of dense forests whose diverse vegetation, marine, and wild life attracts even nature lovers.

Situated 77 km to the south of Indore, here the Narmada meets the local river Kaveri.
