Narmada River is the holiest river and can be considered equivalent with River Ganga. River Narmada, Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari and Cauvery are the holiest rivers, and they are specially created in this earth for doing goodness to their devotees. They are formed through the grace of the Trimurties, in order to cleanse our sins and to make us to live a sin free life.
According to legend, it is believed that Mata Ganga itself takes a holy bath in the great river Narmada in order to make herself, pure and holy.
Once while Lord Shiva was meditating for a long time, his sweat was formed into a river, and that river is called as Narmada. And she is considered as the holy daughter of Lord Shiva.
Since, she is the daughter of Shiva, she protects us from snake bites, and removes the sufferings in our life, and gives peacefulness, prosperity and happiness to us. Her master is Lord Varuna Dev, who showers his grace on to her, and gives strength and power to her in order to discharge her duties properly.
Her vehicle is a crocodile, and she is considered as a very pious and a kind goddess, who forgives our sins, and prays for our well-being to Lord Shiva, and blesses us and gives various boons to us.
Let us worship the holy river Mata Narmada and be blessed.
