According to Indian culture, snakes are also considered as gods. ‘Nagas’ or ‘Sarppas’ means snakes. Usually, we consider a naga as a king cobra. There are more important for this ‘Nagas’ in our epics. Many stories are written about them. One of the very famous Snake in our epic ‘Mahabharatha’ is ‘Anantha’, on that snake Lord Mahavishnu is laying. The great enemy of Nagas in the epics is Garuda, the vehicle of Vishnu.
The main offering to nagas is “Paalum, Noorum”. This can be offered in almost all naga temples in Kerala.
