According to Hindu mythology, the holi festival is believed to be the victory of the Prahlad, the son of Ankhana, who was also a great devotee of lord Bishnu. Prahlad was tried for assassination by Holika who was believed to have blessed with special power by which she was inflammable and Prahlad was to sit on the flames along with Holika so that he would die but that didn’t happen. Instead Holika burnt to ashes by the flames so this festival has great religious importance for the Hindu religion.
