Panoramic view of the dam construction. The boats on the far left
are blocked from coming around because of the dam construction.
The river which is flowing from further upstream essentially splits and flows around
the omkareshwar island and rejoins downstream. Besides affecting
the boatmen, on talking to a couple local residents of Omkareshwar,
we were told that the river would wash off all the "filth" of the
river at least once a year during the monsoons and would thus keep
the river and area clean.
