Poetry in stone

 Ancient Indian sculptures are a treat to the eyes. Stones are modelled into such a fine artistry, that it is really Poetry in Stone!

There are countless temples with these Poetries in Stone of the highest quality . The temples of Omkareswar  are a fine example. You have to see these to justify my claim!

Omkareswar in Madhya Pradesh is a very important place for Hindus. Here the holy river Narmada is split forming an island called the Mandhata Island. The rocky mountain- island houses some of the very very important temples of Lord Shiva, including the Omkareswar temple complex ( Omkareswar is the 52nd of the 84 Jyotirlingams), the Siddhanath temple, the Gouri-Somnath temple, the Rin -Mukteswar temple , the Erondi Mataa temple etc. Mamaleswar on the south bank of Narmada is another very important Shiva temple ( the 4th of the 12 Jyotirlingams). Omkareswar is a complete pilgrimage for the devout Hindus.
