Naga (Sanskrit for serpent) in Hinduism is a mythical half-snake half-human being. They live in the underground Kingdom called Naga-loka, which is filled with resplendent palaces, beautifully ornamented with precious gems. They are guardians of treasure and also associated with water, sea, lakes and rivers. They are potentially dangerous but often beneficial to humans, and only dangerous to the truly evil.
