Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh on an island in the Narmada river is home to a Jyotirlinga shrine and the Amareshwar temple.

LOCATION

This Jyotirlinga is situated by the banks of Narmada river in the Malva area. Gods of all the Gods Lord Shiva's Omkareshwar linga is situated on the mountain Mandhata.

The Puranas speak quite highly of the greatness of Omkareshwar and Mammaleshwar. One has to pass through two rooms before entering the temple. The Jyotirlinga of Omkareshwar is not fixed to the ground, but is naturally set up there. There is always water surrounding it. The significance of this Jyotirlinga is that it is not situated below the dome. The idol of Lord Shiva is put on the top of the temple. Every year on Kartik Poornima a huge fair is organized. The Shiv Purana speaks of the greatness of Omkareshwar and Mammaleshwar.
