Omkareshwar is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, located in Mandhata, near Khandwa city in the Khandwa district of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva. It is on the Island called Mandhata, in the Narmada River. The shape of the island is said to be like the Devanagari Om symbol. Omkareshwar is said to be the place where Adi Shankara met his guru Govinda Bhagavatpada in a cave. This cave can be found even today just below the Shiva temple where an image of Adi Shankara has been installed. Omkareshwar is formed by the sacred river Narmada. This is one of the most sacred rivers in India and is now home to one of the world's biggest dam projects. The temple is situated on Mandhata or Shivpuri island on the banks of Narmada and river Kaveri (a tributary of Narmada). The island is 4 KM long and 2.6 km2 (2,600,000 m2) in area and can be approached by boats and bridges.
