The Omkareshwar Temple Indore

Address :

 





Description :

Omkareshwar temple is recognized to be one of the holiest Hindu sites in the nation. This is because of the presence of the Jyotirlingam, i.e., one of the twelve in India. Lingam is the representation of Lord Shiva but the Jyotirlingam is significant. Jyotirlingam is named the lingam of light. It is said to acquire currents of power from within itself. While, an ordinary lingam is conventionally invested with mantra shakti (power invested by chants) by the priests. The Jyotirlingam is dedicated to sri Omkareshwar temple Mahadeo.


Omkareshwar temple is also populated as the Temple of Shri Omkar Mandhata, Omkareshwar temple is built of locally available soft stone. As a result, there is complicated carving in the front chamber and fascinating wall paintings on the upper parts of the structure. Omkareshwar temple makes hundreds of pilgrims every year from various parts of the nation. The devotees kneel infront of the Jyotirlinga to be blessed by it. Omkareshwar temple presents a outstanding blend of natural as well as the human artistry.
