Hinduism And Hindu Theology - Where Is Amarkantak?



Sacred place (tirtha) in the Vindhya mountains of Madhya Pradesh, near the sources of the Narmada River. 

  • Amarkantak, like all the sacred river confluences in India, is revered as a particularly holy site for religious rituals. 




The majority of pilgrims visit Amarkantak to conduct conventional pilgrimage rituals like snana (bathing) and shraddha (memorial rites), but it is also one of the locations listed in Sanskrit literature as a location for religious suicide.
