Omkareshwar Tourism & Travel Guide

Home to one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in India, Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh is located about 60 minutes from Indore. Visited by tourists from across the world, Omkareshwar is perhaps one of the most popular spots around Indore. The small town is home to two temples, Omkareshwar and Mamleshwar, located opposite each other. It is widely believed that Mamleshwar is actually where the Jyotirlinga is situated, though both temples are architecturally brilliant and have a wonderful energy. You can either take the connecting bridge to the temple from the mainland or enjoy a boat ride till the temple. The rates are nominal and the boat drivers serve as knowledgeable tour guides. Once at the temple, be a little careful. Not only is it very crowded but priests bombard you with requests of donating money to the temple. There is a small market adjacent to the market, though you won't find many things to take back home, there are a few souvenirs you can pick up. Avoid the summer months since it's unbearably hot in the region.

Considered to be one of the greenest cities in the country, Bhopal, is a place that one cannot afford to leave off their tourist trail. Adorned by many natural and as well as manmade lakes and water bodies, Bhopal is often referred to as the ‘City of Lakes.’ The city is home to a number institutions and places that are of great national importance. The city houses ISRO’s Master Control Facility and the famous National Institute of Technical Training and Research (NITTTR), AIIMS and BHEL. The city has a number of attractions that lure many a tourist to tread along its roads. If one does plan a visit to this city, do not forget to pay a visit to the Bhimbetka Rock Caves, the superb artificial Upper Lake, try out the food at the historic Lazeez Hakeem Restaurant and visit the many mosques here. An unfortunate incident in December 1984 propelled Bhopal into the international arena. The case of the Union Carbide India Limited, a plant that manufactured pesticide, saw the leakage of a poisonous mixture of gases, especially methyl isocyanate that lead to the great disaster. Nevertheless, the city is clean now and promises one a great visit.
