The main 'Holika-Dahan' period will be celebrated between 11:13 and 11:53.

Rituals For 'Holika Dahan'

The devotees can embark on rituals with a holy bath to prepare for the bonfire event. The bonfire with mustard, sesame seeds, coconut and Akshat is known to remove bouts of negativity, while a 'desi ghee' diya is often regarded as a ritual to bring positivity and wealth. The believers can offer pooja to Lord Vishnu and goddess Lakshmi along with the 'Stayanaryan' Fast.
