Nag Panchami falls on the fifth day of the fortnight during the bright phase of the moon, in the month of Shravana. This day is dedicated to the worship of snakes. Nag Devta, the lord of snakes, is worshipped on this day. It is said that all the doshas associated with snakes existing in the birth chart of a person are removed by offering prayers on this day. These doshas are believed to be inauspicious for a person's life, though not always.

It is said that the tradition of offering milk to the snakes began long ago. During the Satyuga, the Nag Loka started burning. Cow's milk was offered to them so that their bodies could be soothed. Since it was a Panchami tithi on that day, it is being celebrated as Nag Panchami during the Shravana month.
