About Temple: Omkareshwar is a Hindu temple dedicated to God Shiva. It is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines. It is on an island called Mandhata or Shivapuri in the Narmada river; the shape of the island is said to be like the Hindu ? symbol. There are two temples situated on the island, one called Omkareshwar and the other Amareshwar.
Omkareshwar temple is the main attraction of the pilgrims at Omkareshwar. Omkareshwar owes its very existence to the temple. As to who constructed the temple and when, is all shrouded in mystery.
The sanctum sanctorum containing the Jyotirlinga seems to have been originally a small temple of the old construction style, the dome being made of layers of stone slabs and not of circular cut stones.
As this temple is too close to the precipitously deep bank of the Narmada to the south, the great extension is of new construction style. This is the reason why the sanctum sanctorum and the main deity are neither in the front of the main door nor below the higher conspicuous Shikhar or the tower of later construction.
According to legend, Narad (son of Brahma), once visited the Vindhya parvat and told him that the Meru parvat was larger. This made Vindhya parvat jealous.
Out of determination to be taller than Meru, Vindhya parvat began praying to the Lord Shiva to bless him and make him taller. As a result Lord Shiva was pleased and blessed him with his desired boon.
on a request from all the gods, Lord Shiva divided the linga into two parts, one in Omkareshwar and the other in Amareshwar. He granted Vindhya parvat his boon that he would never stop growing but in return Vindhya should not cause any problems for the people.
But Vindhya dishonoured his promise. He soon obstructed even the sun and the moon. All deities approached sage Agastya for help.
Sage Agastya and his wife made Vindhya promise that he would not grow unltil they returned. Vindhya agreed.
The Sage and his wife left and they never returned. The sage and his wife stayed in Srisailam which is regarded as Dakshina Kashi and one of the Dwadash Jyotirlinga.
