Continuing in a north east direction coming up from Maharashtra, 3 hours by train a couple more on the local bus and I reached Omkareshwar. Its a holy place for hindi pilgrims where a small island sits in the Narmada River, with various temples and ghats to bathe in the water.
I have not spotted any other western tourists, so its definitely been a truely local experience, with food to match, above is my lunch of puri bhaji.
These photos show Omkareshwar throughout the day, firstly looking down river from the new bridge that links to the island. Then at sunset viewing the main temple on the left, then finally on the steps down to the river looking across to the holy island, showing the colourful boats that ferry people across.
