Religious fervour marked the celebrations of Nagulachaviti in the city on Monday as women and children, clad in new traditional dresses, visited snake pits and offered milk. Right from dawn, women made a beeline to various temples to worship the snake god. The festival, which is observed on the fourth day after Diwali, is celebrated by women for the well-being of their children. Women offered milk and eggs at the snake pits with devotion seeking divine blessings for the well-being of their family.
