Meanwhile, some devotees also make snake idols with clay at home. They offer flowers and milk to the idols and are placed near snake holes or burrows.

Nag Panchmi Puja Vidhi:

Devotees, on this day, take bath in the early morning and then create an image of Nag Devta using clay or cow dung on the door of the house. Durva, kusha (sacred grass), and flowers are offered to the Nag Devta and milk-based food items like kheer and sweets are made and presented to the deity. Some of the snake gods that people in India pray to on Nag Panchami are Ananta, Shesha, Vasuki, Kambala, Padma, and Kaliya.

Nag Panchami Significance:

It is believed that any Puja offered to snakes would reach the serpent Gods. Hence people worship live snakes on the day as representative of serpent Gods who are revered and worshipped in Hinduism.
