days before Diwali.

Why is Dhanteras celebrated?

Dhanteras is celebrated to seek blessings of Goddess Laxmi, the goddess of
wealth. In the amalgamation of Dhan teras 'Dhan' means wealth. People and
specially the rich community celebrate Dhan teras festival widely.

What is the legend behind Dhanteras?

The legend behind Dhanteras is centred on the sixteen-year-old son of King
Hima. As per his horoscope he was fated to breathe his last on the fourth day
of his marriage owing to snakebite. On the appointed day his wife illuminated
the house with numerous lamps and placed a heap of gold and silver coins and
ornaments in front of their bedroom. All through the night she sang songs and
told stories.

The lights of the lamps, and the dazzle of the coins and ornaments blinded the
god of death, Yam devta, who had come as a serpent. He spent the entire night
in the heap listening to the sweet sounding songs before leaving peacefully
the next morning. Thus, the wife succeeded in saving the life of her husband.
This explains, why the Dhan teras festival is also referred to
as "Yamadeepdaan".
