Omkareshwar is also known as Mini Varanasi because of its great significance as a Hindu holy place. There is an Om shaped island which is worshipped by the pilgrims who come here in large numbers. Many tourists, who do not have any concern about the religion, also visit here and enjoy the beauty of the place. There is also a market place nearby where one can buy a number of things to remember their visit to Omkareshwar. There are a number of Ghats where the pilgrims take bath and purify their bodies. There is also a Shri Omkar Mandhata temple in the island which again is a place for the Hindu pilgrims.
