The story Origin “Narmadeshwar Mahadev”:
It is believed that once upon a time Lord Shiva was Penancing on the mountain Maikal (Maikaal parvat) in Amarkantak. Meanwhile due to the sun heat a drop of sweat of Lord Shiva fell on the ground. This drop took a form of a holy river. Today this river is known as the Narmada river. When Shiva awoke from penancing and saw a river was flowing there. Lord Shiva gave a boon “I will reside in every stone of this holy river”. From then all the shiv lingas found in the Narmada are “worshipped as Narmadeshwar Mahadev”.
The fact is that One does not have to establish the Narmdeshwar Mahadev by any procedure, the narmadeshwar Mahadev are sacred and very pure that they can be established in the house and can be worshipped. The rare and pure form of Narmadeshwar Mahadev is found at the backside of river Narmada in Bakawaa, Madhya Pradesh India.
