If you live in Indore, Bhopal, or Ujjain region, then you stand a chance to fill any of your Sundays with a one day trip to Omkareshwar-Maheshwar-Mandav. Living in MP, you might feel like you've nowhere to go for a short one day trip, unlike people living in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bengaluru, who have a lot of such options . But trust me, this is your chance to make your Sundays from boring to roaring.
For a head start, try to start your journey as early as possible, like around 6-7 o'clock in the morning. Book Omkareshwar for breakfast (or brunch), Maheshwar for lunch and finally have a delicious dinner at any restaurant/dhaba after bidding a sweet goodbye to Mandav. Trust me, your journey would be worth wasting your Sunday. Below are some of the pictures which I clicked during my journey. I've tried to keep it as informative as possible so as to provide you with all the necessary details. Hope you like it.
Speaking of Omkareshwar, it is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India. It is also said to be the origin point of river Narmada. It lies in the Khandwa region of Madhya Pradesh. It is 139 kms from Ujjain, and it takes 3 hrs to reach there via road. Owing to less traffic and not that much of a rush inside the temple, it took us around 2.5 hrs to reach there, and another 30-35 min inside the temple premises. After that, we had our breakfast at one of the eateries outside the temple. A boat ride in river Narmada was a plus!
