It is an island temple, built on the bank of river Narmada, which branches out here into two and forms a island in the centre. The world famous Omkareswar temple lies atop the Mandhata hill and is doused by Narmada perpetually. This is called Mandhata, but its ancient name was Sivapuri; it can be surmised that due to the existence of two holy temples dedicated to Siva, going by the names of Omkareswar and Amareswar this was called Sivapuri then. The Omkareswar temple enshrines in it one of the Jyothirilingas and has an awe-some antiquity dating back to Krita yuga. Legends are many, all but sing in praise of the glory of this thirtha kshetra.
