What is Holika Dahan and why is it celebrated?

Festival Date

Fire burnt on the eve of Holi (Holika Dahan) symbolizes the burning of Holika. The story as a whole is testament to the power of devotion (bhakta) over the evil represented by King Hiranyakashyapu, as Prahlad never lost his faith.

The story of Holika Dahan (Holika's death) signifies the triumph of good over evil.

Therefore, Holi derives its name from Holika and still people enact the scene of 'Holika's burning to ashes' every year to mark the victory of good over evil. As the legend depicts that anybody, howsoever strong, cannot harm a true devotee. And, those who dare torture a true devotee of god shall be reduced to ashes.
