Siddhanath Temple

Siddhanath Temple is located on the Omkareshwar Island. It is nearby the famous Shri Omkar Nadhata Temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. This temple houses the revered Jyotir Lingam. Siddhanath Temple was built in the early medieval Brahminic style. Its main feature is a frieze of elephants carved on a stone slab at its outer perimeter. The frieze is 15 m high. Ornately carved figures adorn the upper portion of the temple and its roof. The temple is encircled by verandahs with columns carved with circles, polygons and squares. It was severely damaged consequent to the Muslim invasion of Muhammad Gazni. Later it was repaired by the Marathas.
