On the banks of holy Narmada- Omkareshwar
The sacred and purifying Narmada meets the fast flowing Kaveri at the sangam, or confluence, of these two rivers. Located on the westernmost part of the island of Omkareshwar, this narrow projection of land at the meeting point of the streams is covered with stones of all sizes shaped like shivalingas. This island and the river are shaped like “OM” and that is how it derives its name. It is a natural phenomenon. The devotees who go round the temple consider themselves blessed because they are doing a Parikrama or Circumambulation of Omkara itself and Darshan of the holy JyotirLinga.
The place is great resort for photography lovers, though I had only a day to spend I am satisfied what I got from my quick shoot. The people are extremely camera friendly, and don’t shy away from sharing their life stories.
