Omkareshvar, also known as Mandhata Omkareshvar is a holy island shaped like the sacred symbol "OM". The rivers Narmada and Kaveri converge together forming the island Omkara Mandhata. Nature blessed this island with two hillside ranges that reveal the sacred symbol "OM", visable only from above. The island is located 77km south of Indore in Madhya Pradesh, India. It draws thousands of devotees daily to one of 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva.
