Holi is a very age-old festival which we celebrate all over the world. People use to call this festival as “Holika” also. We provide great holi celebration packages within India. Hiranyakashipu’s younger brother was slaughter by Lord Vishnu. But in spite of retribution he wanted to rule over the earth and the heaven by ultimately defeating him. Monster king having the power of blessing wanted that everybody should obey his orders.

As he wanted to rule the whole empire. As the divine being of Prahlad (Son of Hiranyakashipu) was Lord Vishnu, his father could not resist this fact. And wanted to kill his son with the help of “Holika” (Sister of Hiranyakashipu) and Holika sat on fire with Prahalad but somehow Prahalad jumped out and Holika totally blistered on fire. Later, Lord Vishnu also executed Hiranyakashyap. And that is why we celebrate Holi every year since then.
