The Temple

This island temple can be reached by boats from the township. There is also a birdge connecting the temple with the town. The temple containing the Omkareswar Jyotirlinga is fairly a big one with high spires and is built in the North Indian style. There are other shrines dedicated to Sri Annapurna Devi and Panchamukha Ganapathy. The bathing ghats resembling those of famous Kasi facilitate easy bath for the visiting devotees. The shops and vendors supply the needed pooja materials. Of the many that meet the eye here, the countless granite Sivalingas of all sizes merit mention. They are of different sizes and sold in shops, on the pavements and all along the flight of stairs leading to temples. Almost all visitors buy them for worship in their houses, due to a fantastic belief current here. Sanctified by several holy occurrences, this place perches rightly a covetable place on the pilgrim map of India.

It is accessible by train or bus from Ujjaini. And the nearest rail head is Mortakka and from there half an hour bus journey takes one to the temple direct.

Moving further towards the Arabian sea, we reach Somanath that immortal thirtha kshetra where Somanathalinga, standing the ravages of Mlechchas is backoning Bhaktakoti for showering mukti of any type.
