Omkareshwar, The virtuous place
There are quite a few mythical stories and legends attached to the history and origination of Omkareshwar. The first one goes to say that Vindhya- the deity controlling the Vindhyachal mountain ranges was worshipping Lord Shiva to cleanse his soul of the sins committed by him. He made a lingam of sand and clay. Impressed by the worship, Lord Shiva appeared before him in two forms- Omkareshwar and Amkareshwar. The second legend suggests that an ancestor of Lord Ram- King Mandhata, worshipped Lord Shiva to the extent that the God appeared and manifested himself in the form of Jyotirlinga. Another Hindu myth says that once during the ancient times, there was a war between the Devas(gods) and Danavs(demons), in which the Devas lost the battle to the Danavs. Disappointed by the failure, the Devas prayed to Lord Shiva, who impressed by their faith and devotion, appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga and defeated the Danavs.
