Why it is known as Saputara ?

The name Saputara literally stands for 'abode of serpents,' a fact that is highlighted by the presence of an image of a snake on the shores of the Sarpagana river, which flows through the town.

This image is worshipped by the region's tribal folk, especially during major festivals such as Holi. Adding to Saputara's mystique is the legend that Lord Rama spent 11 years of his exile in these very forests.
