Mother Narmada is mentioned in Rewakhand under the Skanda Purana of Hindus. According to the legend, Lord Shiva was doing penance on Mount Metal, which is today known as Amarkantak, after destroying the demon named darkness. At that time the gods prayed to Lord Vishnu and sought help to get rid of the evil deeds being done on the path of unrighteousness. At that time Lord Vishnu had spoken to Mahadev Ji for a solution. When Lord Vishnu was requesting a solution, only a drop of water fell on the earth from the beautiful Somkala on Shiva's head. After that drop of water was transformed into a lovely girl.
