Today is the day of festival Nag Panchami. It is a festival during which religious Hindus in some parts of India worship live Nagas or images of them. Snakes are worshiped on this day.

Snakes during nag Panchami are offered milk and silver jewelries. The day when Lord Krishna defeated the Serpent Kalia is remembered on this festival.

It is celebrated on the fifth day after Amavasya of the month of Shraavana. Traditionally, married young women visit their premarital households to celebrate the festival.
