Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Enjoy the tranquility of a sanctuary built over a pool at Omkareshwara Temple, a small Hindu temple perched on the banks of the Narmada River. Originally built in the mid-18th century, the current structure features a mixture of neo-Gothic and Islamic architecture, with a gilt dome surrounded by four turrets resembling minarets, and the main building painted white with stark red lining. One of the 12 revered Jyotirling temples, the complex serves as a popular pilgrimage site. Check out the pool behind the temple, abundant with fish and frequented by ducks and herons.
