According to mythological legend, once a war was going on between the gods and demons. The gods were continuously facing defeat by the power of demons. So, Lord Indra went to Lord Brihaspati and asked for help. Lord Indra’s sister, Indrani was also present there. Indrani immediately tied a thread around Lord Indra’s wrist while chanting Mantras. This act saved the life of Indra from the demons. The festival of Raksha Bandhan started from this day.
