I have read in wiki about Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga. Before I knew this one is called Omkareshwar, But when I read in wiki, they call it Mamleshwar. I got confused. Can anyone give insight on it? Thank you.
Omkareswara is the 4th one among the total 12 Jyotirlingams.
It is situated in Shivapuri or Mamaleswara, a place in Madhya Pradesh.
Refer to the "Dwadasa Jyotirlinga Stotram" found here:
Sourashtre Somanadham, cha Sri Shaile Mallikarjunam, Ujjayinyam Maha Kalam, Omkara Mamaleshwaram, Paralyam Vaidyanatham, cha Dakinyam Bhimasankaram,
Meaning of the words in bold: In Mamaleswara the Jyotirlinga is called Omkara.
So,both "Omkareswara" and "Mamaleswara" refer to the same Jyotirlingam with Mamaleswara referring to the place where the Jyotirlinaga is situated and Omkareswara to the name or the form of the Lingam.
Also refer to this page ,where the name of the 12 Jyotirlingams are given in bold:
The Dwadasa Jyotirlinga Stotra Saurashtre Somanaatham Cha Sree Shaile Mallikarjunam Ujjayinyaam Mahaakaalam Omkaare Mamaleswaram Himalaye to Kedaram Daakinyaam Bhimashankaram Vaaranaasyaam cha Viswesam Trayambakam Gowtameethate Paralyaam Vaidyanaatham cha Naagesam Daarukaavane Setubandhe Ramesham Grushnesam cha Shivaalaye
Edit- I'm adding yet another source which says exactly the opposite of what is being said in the above.It says Omkara is the place where the Jyotirlingam is situated and the Lingam is called Amareswara.
It is a stotram composed by Nandi(the Bull) and is found in the Shiva Purana.
Quoting from this page,the following is the description of the 12 Jyotirlingams as given by Nandi:
Kedaro Himavatprushthe Daakinyaam Bhimasankarah
Vaaranaasyam cha Viswestriumbako Gautami thatey
Saurashtrey Sommanathasva Srisaile Mallikarjunah
Ujjainyam Maha Kala Omkare cha Amaresvarah
Vaidyanathaaschitha bhumo Nagesho Daarukaananey
Sethu bandhe cha Ramesho Ghrusneswara Siva lingo
Avatara Dvadasakamethchhambhoh Paramatmana
Nandiswara described the Most Celebrated Twelve Jyotirlingas of Maha Deva as follows:
Kedarnath in Himalayas
Bhima Sankar in Dakinya
Viswesvara in Varanasi
Triambaka on the banks of River Gautami
Somnatha in Saurashtra
Mallikarjuna in Sri Sailam
Maha Kala in Ujjain
Amareswara at Omkara
Vaidyanatha in Chitha Bhumi
Nagesa at Daruka
Rameswara at Setu Bandhana, and
Also if you see the images of the 12 Jyotirlingams in the above page then you will find that the fourth Jyotirlingam there is mentioned collectively as
Sri Omakaramamaleswara,Sri Amalaeswara
Now, both of them can't be a Jyotirlingam each because there are only 12 of them & not 13.
So,both taken together constitutes one Jyotirlingam.This is the most rational and acceptable answer.
सौराष्ट्रे सोमनाथंच श्री शैले मल्लिकार्जुनम् |
उज्जयिन्यां महाकालमोंकारममलेश्वरम् ||
In this verse, Mamleshwar in Omkareshwar region is called Jyotirlinga. Both Omkareshwar and Mamaleshwar are in the form of the same Jyotirlinga, Mamaleshwar on the south bank of the Narmada and Omkareshwar sits on the Omkar Parvat towards the north and the mother Narmada sits in the middle.
