Route : Delhi-Indore-Omkareshwar-Maheshwar-Delhi
Located at the sacred confluence of the two branches of the River Narmada, the temple sits on Shivpuri Island otherwise known as Mandhata island. It is one of the most sacred Jyothirlingas of Lord Shiva. The island has the shape of the Sanskrit symbol for “OM”, which is why the temple and the place are called Omkareshwar.
The glorious city of Mahishmati, the ancient capital of King Kartivirajun, Maheshwar is a charming temple town dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is situated on the convergence of the River Narmada and Kaveri in the state of Madhya Pradesh,
Maheshwar has a special charm which needs to be experienced at leisure. Lining the banks of the River Narmada, there are several Ghats named after various dynasties of the great Holkar rulers. The Ghats exemplify the peaceful rhythm of everyday life here, suggesting the slower-paced India of a bygone time.
The beauty of Mandu is best experienced during monsoon season; it first became popular in the Mughal era as a monsoon retreat - Emperor Jahangir especially was captivated by the beauty of Mandu in the rainy season. The group of monuments here has been nominated as tentative UNESCO world heritage site.
