Nagas mostly live in the depths of water such as rivers, lakes and they control the weather, especially rain There are many different types nagas, some of them can be very powerful. Nagas can greatly affect the areas in which they reside. If we respect the environment, the nagas will be pleased and will look after it well.  On the other hand, they can become angry and upset if we pollute and harm it which result in sicknesses and natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones and drought.
