|According to Hindu Mythology, River Narmada, descended from the sky as per the orders of Lord Shiva. This river is also called by the name of Shankari (Shiva’s daughter) since it is believed to have originated from the body of Lord Shiva.
On the banks of this holy river there are many pilgrimages like Maheshwar, Mahadeo and Omkareshwar, named after Lord Shiva. The worship of Shiva is common in these areas, and each stone or pebble found in the bed of the Narmada is believed to be a Shivalinga. Narmada is considered as the peace giver.
