About Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga

The Omkareshwar temple is one of the 12 famous Jyotirlinga temples of Lord Shiva, which is of tremendous religious significance to all Hindus. Situated upon the Mandhata hills or Shivpuri on the banks of river Narmada, this legendary temple has several fascinating legends associated with it.

Those who undergo the holy pilgrimage to Omkareshwar in order to gain Lord Shiva’s darshan, are ultimately blessed with the promise of salvation. Their lives are transformed by the powerful blessings of Lord Shiva, in his Omkareshwar avatar.

Importance Of Omkareshwar Temple

According to legend, the Vindhya mountain was once provoked by sage Narada, who teased it that Mount Meru was more important. Vindhya was determined to prove Narada wrong and started observing strict penance with the aim of pleasing Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva was greatly pleased by the devotion of Vindhya and granted him his wish of being greater than Meru.

King Mandhata of Ishvaku clan (an ancestor of Lord Ram) worshipped Lord Shiva here till the Lord manifested himself as a Jyotirlinga. Some scholars also narrate the story about Mandhata's sons-Ambarish and Mucchkund, who had practiced severe penance and austerities here and pleased Lord Shiva. Because of this the mountain is named Mandhata.

Another legend found in Hindu scriptures says that once upon a time there was a great war between Devas and Danavas(demon), in which Danavas won. This was a major setback for Devas and hence Devas prayed to Lord Shiva. Pleased with their prayer, Lord Shiva emerged in the form of Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga and defeated Danavas.
