Marines from USA catching a Nāga snake

Marines from USA catching a Nāga snake
This photo shot was made during the Vietnamese war when soldiers from USA catch a 7 Meter long Nāga snake out the Mekong river. Most people believe on the truth of this photo but its obviously manipulated.

The legend of the Nāga is a strong and sacred belief held by Cambodian, Lao and Thai people living along the Mekong River. Many pay their respects to the river because they believe the Nāga still rule in it, and locals hold an annual sacrifice for the Nāga. Each ceremony depends on how an individual village earns its living from the Mekong River - for instance, through fishing or transport. Local residents believe that the Nāga can protect them from danger, so they are likely to make a sacrifice to Nāga before taking a boat trip along the Mekong River.
