Nag Panchmi is a Hindu festival on which snakes are worshipped. Nag Panchmi is celebrated as the victory of Lord Krishna on Kaliya, the most dangerous snake. In the Mahabharata, Astika, the Brahmin son of Jaratkarus, who stopped the Sarpa Satra of Janamejaya, king of the Kuru empire which lasted for 12 years is well documented. This yagna was performed by Janamejaya to decimate the race of all snakes, to avenge for the death of his father Parikshit due to snake bite of Takshaka, the king of snakes. The day that the yagna (fire sacrifice) was stopped, it is observed as Nag Panchami.
The thousand-headed Shesh Nag who symbolises Eternity is the couch of Lord Vishnu. It is on this couch that the Lord reclines between the time of the dissolution of one Universe and creation of another. Hindus believe in the immortality of the snake because of its habit of sloughing its skin. As such Eternity in Hinduism is often represented by a serpent eating its own tail. In Jainism and Buddhism snake is regarded as sacred having divine qualities. It is believed that a Cobra snake saved the life of Buddha and another protected the Jain Muni Parshwanath. To-day as an evidence of this belief, we find a huge serpent carved above the head of the statue of Muni Parshwanath.
There is a sacred precept to worship serpents and Lord Shiva on this festival. Panchami tithi has its importance in many ways. According to Shastras-By having fast and worshipping Nag Dev on Nag Panchami Day one's desires and ambitions are fulfilled.
