Varanasi is a witness to the famous 'Nag-Nathaiya Leela' every year to commemorate the birth of Lord Krishna. It takes place at Tulsi Ghat in Varanasi and is a 20 day long event. The re-enactment of the famous killing of Nag is done. A young boy acting Lord Krishna jumps in the river and emerges on top of the head of Kaliya Nag, the dreaded serpent during the climax. This episode is watched by lakhs of devotees on the ghats of Holy River Ganga.
