Nagvasuki Mandir Overview
According to ancient Hindu scriptures and the Bhagavata Purana, snakes have always been worshipped by the Hindus in various forms. The Vasuki Nag was a part of the life of Lord Krishna, a Hindu god. According to legends, he stole Krishna’s ball while he and his friends were playing.

Krishna later dived into the river where the Vasuki Nag lived to find the ball. After an intense battle, Krishna emerged victorious on top of the five-headed snake’s crown. The Nagvasuki temple is devoted to the Vasuki Nag. The idol is worshipped by devotees from around the country.

The temple also hosts several elaborate rituals throughout the year, making it a place for pomp and celebration at times. The architecture is a traditional north Indian style with a dominating shikhara colored in yellow and orange — every year on Nag Panchami, devotees flock here to worship snakes. The temple also offers unparalleled views of the Ganges River.
