    The Snake Kings of Hindu scriptures
    The Panchami of Shukla Paksh of the Shravan month is celebrated as Naag Panchami. This month, the festival falls on 28th July, Friday. The day marks the worship of snakes, who are considered as Gods in Hindu mythology.
    On the occasion of Nag Panchami, we bring you all types of snake gods mentioned in our scriptures.
    Vasuki Naag
    Vasuki is a nagaraja, one of the King serpents of Hindu and Buddhist mythology. He is the king of nagas and has a gem called Nagamani on his head.
    Mansa, another naga, is his sister. Vasuki is Shiva's snake, who is coiled around Shiva’s neck. The most famous legend of Hindu epics wherein Vasuki took part was the incident of Samudra manthan- the churning of the ocean of milk.
    In this legend, Vasuki allowed the devas (gods) and the asuras (demons) to bind him to Mount Mandara and use him as their churning rope to extract the ambrosia of immortality from the ocean of milk.
