Hello!

I am going to visit India this summer and I heard about the snake festival Nag Panchami. I cannot find much information online about the celebrations of this day in last years.

Is it worth to go to Battis Shirala to see the festival? Are there still a lot of tourists that go there? Are the celebrations banned now?

Also what are some other towns or villages in India that celebrate Nag Panchami and how does it look like?

Thank you very much!

A total of 30 video cameras will capture the festival activities and procession on Friday.

So what are these other festivities after the ban that are mentioned in the article?
