Default quiz number 7

oldest habitat of humans in the indian subcontinent. a place which has no equals in history.its equivalents are only found in france/usa.footprints left behind in the sands of time. we are privileged to be a witness to such heritage. it leaves behind all concepts of modern world.

@phamilyman it is omkareshwar

and not mandu - because mandu does not have that kinda big lake structure

Brings me memories of that great trip I had. Seems like there's more water now. Did you go up to the dam site and see the other side of it? Were you able to do the Parikrama? I was planning a trip in Nov again to do the Parikrama.
@mx6 narmada was full and omkareshwar was beautiful after the rains i did not get to go to the shiva statue even on my 2nd visit have u been up on that hill?
