Nag Panchami 

Nag Panchami is a festival during which Hindus in some parts of India worship live Nagas. 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. Specially in villages, an aspect of the celebration involves women swinging on swings hung on tree branches.

The Prajapati Daksha gave his thirteen daughters in marriage to Rishi Kashyapa. Kashyapa was the father of the devas, asuras, nagas and all of humanity.The Nagas (serpents) are his sons from Kadru.Nagas were the rulers of Patal-Loka. The names of the Nine Great Nagas are: Ananta, Shesha, Padmanabha, Kambala, Shankhapala, Dhartarashtra, Takshaka, Vasuki and Kaliya.

Lord Krishna conquered Naga Kaliya and put an end to the evil deeds on this day. This day subsequently started celebrating as Naga Panchami. The other legend relates to the tradition which says that the Kathmandu valley used to be a vast lake. When human beings started to drain the lake to make space for settlements, Nagas became enraged. To protect themselves against the wrath of Nagas, people gave the latter certain areas as pilgrimage destinations, thus restoring harmony in nature.
