God in snake

The belief in worshipping snake as a god prevails in Hinduism in this part of the world. “Nagaraja” the King of Snakes is predominantly worshipped using milk and egg at these temples.

Seen @ Vengeeswarar temple, Kodambakkam.

  1. Fascinating beliefs and customs. Especially when compared to the Christian belief that the devil appeared as a snake to tempt Eve in the garden of paradise.

    Very pretty flowers. Do you know what they are? They look similar to bougainvilla flowers to me.

    Ram: Thanks for commenting Hilda. Hmm …. an interesting take on the beliefs, yes. These flowers are “Plumeria obtusa” (botanical name) called Arali here & commonly the Oleander.
