About Nagula Chavithi:
Nagula Chavithi is a festival to worship Nag Devatas or Serpent Gods and is observed on the fourth day after Deepavali Amavasya in Karthika month. Nagula Chavithi is usually observed by married women for the welfare of their children.
Nagula Chavithi is a popular festival in the state of Andhra Pradesh and some parts of Karnataka.
It is believed that any Puja offering made to the snakes would reach to the Serpent Gods. Hence, on this day people worship live snakes with a belief that they represent Serpent Gods, who are respected and worshipped in Hinduism. Even though there are several Serpent Gods, twelve of them are worshipped during Nagula Chavithi Puja.
