4 Most Interesting Legends Behind Holi

Ask anyone from India about Holi and the answer will be, "Colours." Other elements of the festival will be mentioned only after colours have been extolled in enthusiastic and orgasmic tones. Of course there is more to Holi. There are legends connected to it that go right into the heart of Kamadev or into the games between Lord Krishna and Radha or the emotionally charged story of Holika and Prahlada. The festival even has links to the ogress Dhundi.
