It is considered that the visit to Omkareshwar is incomplete if you have not been to Mamleshwar. It is said that the shivling at Omkareshwar is half part of Shivling at Mamleshwar. Mamleshwar is comparatively less crowded temple. temple architecture is too good and has its own charm

It is considered that the visit to Omkareshwar is incomplete if you have not been to Mamleshwar. It is said that the shivling at Omkareshwar is half part of Shivling at Mamleshwar. Mamleshwar is comparatively less crowded temple and vehicle parking is available just outside this temple. In fact I would advise that you park your car near Mamleshwar pay your tribute to Mamleshwar and then take Jhoola bridge and you would avoid staircases to Omkareshwar temple.

Lord Omkareshwar temple is in Madhya Pradesh. Though it is a small island yet is a very important sacred pilgrimage centre. We can see the natural formation of the Hindu religious icon Om. There are two hills that are divided in such a manner to look like Om in Sanskrit. The island is formed on the confluence of river Narmada and Kaveri. This Kaveri is different one than the Cauvery River in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The River Narmada is divided itself in two parts at the commencement of the island. The flow on either side is named as Narmada and Kaveri who mingle at the end of the island forming the shape of OM. We can see thousands of tourists visiting this picturesque island from all over the world.

Lord Omkareshwar is the main diety. It is one of the twelve Jyothirlingas in the country. But actually and religiously there are two Jyothirlingas at this place. The main Linga is split into two from the original one, and these two Sivalingas are known as Omkareshwar and Amaleswara (popularly known as Mamaleswar). It is found immediately on the other bank of Narmada River. It is a protected monument. We see an attractive architectural stone work in this temple of historical and religious importance. A pilgrimage to Omkareshwar is not complete until you visit Mamaleswar Jyothirlinga also.

This religious place Omkareshwar was known as Shivpuri in puranic stories. It is located in Ujjain on the Mandhata hills in Madhya Pradesh in India. This temple has history from Krita Yuga. The river Narmada flows around the Mandhata hill in the form of alphabet Om in Sanskrit (Omkaram).

There is a five faced (Panchamuga) idol of Lord Ganesha. The devotees consider the offering of prayers to in this temple, to be most auspicious. There is yet another shrine of Goddess Annapoorani Mata. The speciality of this place is that Shivalingas of various sizes are sold in huge numbers to the devotees. You will find cave here which is said to be the abode of Govinda Bhagavatpaada, the guru, guide and philosopher of Adi Sankaracharya.

Being a small town, Omkareshwar has very few dining options. Here's a list of trustworthy food joints in Omkareshwar which serve some good food. Omkareshwar is connected to Indore, Ujjain, Khandwa and Omkareshwar Road by regular bus services. The nearest train station is Omkareshwar railway station at 15km from temple. The airport at Indore is the nearest one. Food and accommodation are available

This is said to be the twin temple for Omkareshwar and a must-visit. Some even say that visit to Omkareshwar is incomplete without a visit to Mamleshwar. The steps leading up to the temple from the ghat are quite tiring though.
