Naga Raja reigns supreme as the god of snakes mainly because of the ability to influence the weather depending on his feelings. Long summer droughts can be explained when Raja is angry, thus he has to always be conscious about his emotions.
Naga Raja means "Naga King". Nāga is the Sanskrit and Pāli word for a deity or class of entity or being, taking the form of a very great snake—specifically the King Cobra, found in Hinduism and Buddhism. The use of the term nāga is often ambiguous, as the word may also refer, in similar contexts, to one of several human tribes known as or nicknamed "Nāgas"; to elephants; and to ordinary snakes, particularly the King Cobra and the Indian Cobra. A female nāga is a nāgī or nāginī.
