Nag Panchami Festival is the festival of snakes. The festival falls during the rainy months and is believed to contradict the augmented possibility of a snake bite during this time.
Many pilgrims as well as tourists from all over the country visit temples specially devoted to snakes and worship them on the day of Nag Panchami Festival. The temples dedicated to Lord Shiva are also preferential places for reverence as snakes are considered very close and dear to Shiva.
Time of Celebration:
The Nag Panchami Festival is celebrated on the fifth day of the brilliant fortnight in the month of Shravan.
