The ancients thought that snakes had a unique power to kill because of their venomous nature. That is why serpents are worshiped as gods. The people who worship are called Nagas. Later they were portrayed as cobra-shaped men. The Aryans captured their place and the war arises. In mythology, epics and religions, the practice of combining snakes is found in many parts of the world. Later this worship is linked to religion. However, in Villibharata, countless Nagas have been destroyed. Over time, Naga worship and Nagas have been changing in various understandings with various religions and changing according to the situation.
