Holika Dahan 2024 Date & Time, Holika Dahan Story
Holika was given a boon by Lord Brahma that she would never be harmed by fire. There was a time when Holika sat on a bonfire with Prahlad on the orders of her brother and Prahlad's father "Hiranyakashipu" so that Prahlad gets killed but instead as Prahlad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, the fire did no harm to him and Holika was burnt alive.
