About Omkareshwar & Mandu
Omkareshwar is a Hindu temple in Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh state. It is on an island called Mandhata (or Shivapuri) in the Narmada River. It is one of the 12 revered Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva. It is about 80 km from Indore and 130 Km from Ujjain. The shape of the island resembles the Hindu Om symbol. There are two temples here, one to Omkareshwar (whose name means "OM-maker-lord") and one to Amareshwar (whose name means "immortal lord" or "lord of the immortals").
Mandu (or Mandavgarh) is a nice hill station and ruined city in the Dhar District in the Malwa region of western Madhya Pradesh state, central India. The distance between Ujjain & Mandu is about 150 km. In the 11th century, Mandu was the sub division of the Tarangagadh or Taranga kingdom . This fortress town on a rocky outcrop about 100 km (60 miles) from Indore is celebrated for its fine architecture. Mandu celebrates in stone the life and love of the poet-prince Baz Bahadur for his consort, Rani Roopmati. The balladeers of Malwa still sing of the romance of these royal lovers. High on the crest of a hill, Rani Roopmati's pavilion gazes down at Baz Bahadur's palace, a magnificent expression of Afghan architecture.
Trip cost is INR 2,500 per person, and includes all transportation/accommodation/food and sessions.
NOTE: Museum entry tickets in Mandu are separate and have to be paid for by participants.
Trip may get cancelled if the registration of Tour is less then five persons.
