Nag Panchami Date, Time, Pooja Benefits: Shravana is the Hindu month dedicated to Lord Shiva. Nag Panchami is the most important festival held in the month of Shravana. Nag Panchami is a celebration that commemorates Lord Shiva as well as the Nag Devta. It is said that celebrating Nag Panchami cleanses one of all sins and grants Shiva's blessings.

Nag Panchami is observed every year on the fifth day of Shukla Paksha in the holy month of Shravana, according to the Hindu calendar. The Panchami Tithi begins on Thursday, August 12, at 3:28 p.m. and concludes on Friday, August 13, at 1:44 p.m. in 2021.

This year, however, the festival will only be held on August 13th. The Nag Devta is the resident lord of the Panchami Tithi in Vedic astrology. That is why, especially on this day, the holy scriptures urge all believers to worship him (Nag Devta).

Nag Panchami is also mentioned in several mythical writings. According to legend, anybody who worships Nag Dev on this day will be spared from all types of bad luck brought on by the malefic planets Rahu and Ketu.

According to believers, anyone suffering from the Kaal Sarp Dosh would likewise be rid of its bad consequences. On this day, Vedic astrology recommends doing Kal Sarp Yog rituals to get rid of snake phobia and the risk of being bitten by snakes.

On the day of Nag Panchami, celebrations and large fairs are held in various areas. Nagoba Temple in Nagpur, Maharashtra, is known for its Naga Panchami puja.
