Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga a shiv temple on Omkar mountain an island in mid Narmada. Omkareshwar is now a developed place as compare to old village type reputation, It has number of Hotels having good lodging and boarding facilities including a/c rooms and restaurents.


As indicated by Śiva Mahāpurāṇa, when Brahma (the divine force of creation) and Vishnu (the type of God during safeguarding) had a contention over incomparability of creation. To settle the discussion, Shiva pierced the three universes showing up as a colossal limitless mainstay of light, the Jyotirlinga which later cooled into the blessed mountain Annamalai (on which the Temple of Arunachaleshwara is located).

Vishnu and Brahma split their approaches to downwards and upwards separately to track down the finish of the light in one or the other course. Brahma lied that he discovered the end, while Vishnu surrendered his loss. This lie of Brahma infuriated Shiva making him revile Brahma that despite the fact that he is the maker of the universe he would not be loved. The jyotirlinga is the Supreme Shiva, partless reality, out of which Shiva showed up in another structure, Lingodbhava. The jyotirlinga hallowed places are sanctuaries where Shiva showed up as a red hot segment of light.
