There are various stories about how Shiva Lingam was formed. We can find various things written in the ancient texts and Wikipedia pages.
According to Shiva Purana, once brahmins were praying to Lord Shiva and just to test their devotion, Lord Shiva came naked before the devotees draped in ash.
The brahmins could not recognize him and hence cursed him that ‘let his penis fall on the Earth’. This started to cause massive destruction on the Earth.
As a result of this Lord Brahma offered a solution to it. Accordingly, devotees prayed to Goddess Parvati and asked her to take the shape of a vagina in which the lingam could stay fixed. Accordingly, Shiva lingam was formed.
Yet another theory states that lingam depicts the way we remember Shiva. Because Shiva belongs to Sata Yuga when human existence was not there and humans were just souls roaming in the Universe.
As time passed from Sata Yug, Dwapar Yug, Treta Yug and Kal Yug, our memories faded as a result we remember the bright spot of light, the Supreme God as a lingam.
Narmada is considered to be a Virgin river and all stones found in its belt form the shape of Lingam. Ancient texts point to it and refer to Narmada as a pious river.
What is so special about Narmadeshwar Lingam?

According to mythology Narmada originates from the body of Lord Shankar. Hence it is also known as ‘Shankari’. The word ‘Narmada’ means ‘delight of giving’. Thus all stones found in its river bed resemble Lord Shiva. This gives it the name of ‘Narmadeshwar Lingam’.
