Nag Panchami as the name suggests, and it is the festival dedicated to the snakes. The main reason behind the celebrations of Nag Panchmi is that it is observed in the rainy season when the rain water seeps in the snake holes and force snakes to come out of it. In the search of their new place to live, they can cause harm to anyone. To pacify them, people worship them and offer them milk and silver jewelry.

Legend behind the celebration of Nag Panchami

According to Hindu mythological stories, there was Krishna, who saved people of Mathura from the fear of the snake Kaliya.

It is described that there are three aspects of the Supreme that must...
empower Kaliya?


Once, Krishna was playing with the ball at the bank of Yamuna with his friends. Unfortunately, the ball fell in the river. Krishna took the dip into the river to get the ball where he was attacked by Kaliya. Krishna fought with him and empowered him. Krishna was ready to kill him, but Kaliya pleaded to spare his life. Krishna agreed but asked him to vouch that he would not harm anyone anymore. Nagpanchami is thus the celebration of the Krishna over Kaliya.

& Snake


Shiva is one most short tempered God. He wears snake in the neck in three folds that represent past, present and future. It represents Shiva is Independent of Time and controls time. To please Shiva people worship snakes especially on the day of Nag Panchami by offering milk to them.

Celebrations of Nag Panchami

People abstain themselves from digging the earth this day. They offer milk, fried paddy, and druva(tip of a special grass) in front of the image of the snake or make the idol of a snake with mud and sand and worship it.

Nag Panchami is celebrated in almost all parts of India such as in Maharashtra there is a group of people who beg for alms and clothes by taking an inactive cobra in a plate and visiting as many houses as possible.

Keralites prefer to visit the snake temples and worship the stone or metal icons of the snakes.

Similarly, people in other parts of India worship snakes and save them and their families from any kinds of danger from them.
