NAG

There are a number of references to ‘Nag’ in Puranas. These people were the worshiper of Snakes, particularly ‘Mai Dhari Sarp’.
They lived both in hills and plans. The King of Nag peole “Takshak” opposed construction of Indraprastha and Pandava defeated
them in the battle.

It is said that Nag people were from the other side of himalaya who has Nag as their national emblem. In puranas, nag are
described as human being sometime whereas at some places they are also described as snakes.

Hindus made many attempts to destroy Nag tribe. A large number of Nag were killed in ‘Khandav Van”. Pandava defeated them in
Magadh. King Janmejay is said to have performed a ‘Yagna’ giving the ‘ahuti’ of nags. Lond Krishna chased them from the banks
of Yamuna and made thm to hide in the Uttarakhand. Powerful Aryans sometime made ‘Gandharva Vivah’ with the young girls of nag
clan. In Mahabharata, Arjun performed gandharva vivah with a nag girl named ‘Ulomi’.

There is a Lake near Kathmandu which is known as Naghrid. There lived the king of nag clan ‘Rajkotak’. An annual fair is still
organized there. Some of the Tibetans call themselves as descendent of Nags and their language nagbhasha. Initially Nag and Aryan
were at war but later with the efforts of Bothisatva Arya Balokiteshwar, a treaty of peace was materialized. Later some of the
traditions of each religions were adopted by others due to co-existence which are still apparent. Snakes are worshiped in Hindu
religion also. The festival of ‘Nagpachami’ is the proof of a inter – religion adaptations.

In Garhwal, Nag used to live at the banks of Alakhnanda in Nagpur patti and Urgam areas. That is why ‘Sheshnag’ is still worshiped
at Pandukeshwar. Bhikhal Nag is worshiped in Ratgaon, Sangal Nag in Talore, Banapa Nag in Margaon, Lohandev Nag in Jilam and
Pushkar Nag is worshiped in Nagnath.  Nagsiddh or Nagachal parvat is in the memory of Baman Nag. In Garhwal, there are still
some ‘Nagvanshi Thakur’ which could be their descendents.
