Nag Panchami 2022 to be celebrated today


KATHMANDU:- People across Nepal are marking the festival of Nag Panchami on Tuesday. In this festival, the people paste the pictures of serpent deity above the main entrance of their houses.

On the occasion, people in the Kathmandu Valley visit Nag Pokhari of Naxal of Kathmandu, Dhapakhel of Lalitpur and Taudaha Nag Pokhari of Kirtipur in Kathmandu.

People also visit nearby temples which are mainly dedicated to snake gods and perform pooja.

People also symbolically feed milk to snakes with the hope that such act will cure the astrological imbalance and save the family from evil.

Nag Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of the lunar fortnight of the month of Shravan (between July and August) every year.

On this day, a big religious fair takes place at Changunarayan Temple, which lies at the top of small hill in Bhaktapur.

History of Nag Panchami 

It is believed that when Lord Krishna was a child, he was playing by the Yamuna River and his ball became caught in the branches of a tree near the river’s banks. Krishna was attacked by Kaliya, a snake when he fell into the river while trying to fetch the ball.

The snake begged Krishna not to kill it after he put up a good fight and showed that he was no ordinary kid. To commemorate Krishna’s triumph over Kaliya, the most venomous snake, Nag Panchmi is observed on the fifth day after Ashwini, which marks the end of the serpent’s reign of terror.
