Omkareshwar Jyothirlinga temple

One of the holiest shrines in the whole of India, the Omkareshwar or Omkar Mandhata temple is one of the twelve revered jyothirlingas in India. The temple is situated on an island called Mandhata, located at the meeting point of the rivers Narmada and Kaveri. The island is said to be in the shape of the Hindu 'OM' symbol. There are multiple temples on this island and the actual jyothirlinga is said to be in the Mamleshwar temple. This temple, apart from the religious values, also boasts of stunning architecture and houses beautiful frescos and carvings.

Kedareshwar Temple

Built in the 11th century, the Kedareshwar temple is one of the most eminent shrines in Madhya Pradesh. The religious significance of the place attracts devotees and tourists from all over the world.

Siddhanath Temple

Sri Govinda Bhagavatpaada Cave

Considered very religious by the Hindus, this cave has a main hall and a small sanctum with a Shivalingam. It is believed that it was here where Shankaracharya met the great saint Govinda Bhagwatpad and he took spiritual education and his deeksha under him. It is also believed that Shankaracharya saved the town from a big flood by forcing the river water into a kamandal (small bowl), which he had placed near the mouth of the cave. He did this to also save his Guru as he was emerged into a Samadhi in the cave.

Parikrama on the island

According to Hindu mythology, a walk around any positive source of energy provides one with positive energy too. It is considered to be a sacred thing and what better way to do it than a parikrama across the entire island. This stretch of around 8 km takes around 3 hours to complete and is not very dificult. The whole area is also very picturesque as this stretch is along the island.
