Holika Dahan (होलिका दहन) is the symbol of the good prevailing on earth and the evil gets annihilated once again. Holika Dahan Muhurat tells you the right time to perform Holika Dahan. Don’t miss out to celebrate the victory of divinity over demons. 

Holika Dahan Muhurta is decided based on following rules :-
The first preference to get Holika Dahan Muhurta is during Pradosh while Purnimasi Tithi is prevailing and Bhadra is over. If Bhadra prevails during Pradosh but it ends before midnight then Holika Dahan should be done after Bhadra is over. If Bhadra is getting over after midnight then only Holika Dahan should be done in Bhadra and preferably during Bhadra Punchha. However one should avoid Bhadra Mukha and in no condition Holika Dahan should be done in Bhadra Mukha. Doing so brings bad luck for the whole year not only for individuals but for whole city and country. Many times Bhadra Punchha is not available between Pradosh and midnight. In such situations one should do Holika Dahan during Pradosh. In rare occasions when neither Pradosh nor Bhadra Punchha is available then one should do Holika Dahan after Pradosh. 

Choosing right Muhurta for Holika Dahan is more important than choosing right Muhurta for any other festivals. For other festivals doing puja at wrong time will not bring puja benefits but doing Holika Dahan at wrong time would bring suffering and misfortune. 

The Holi/Dhulandi day when people play with colors is always next day of Holika Dahan or Holi bonfire.
