According to the legend there was a powerful king named Hiranyakshyap who considered himself to be God. Hiranyakshyap wanted everybody to worship him. However, against his wishes, his own son Prahlad began worshiping Lord Vishnu.
With a view to kill his son, Hiranyakshyap he requested his sister, Holika to enter a burning fire with Prahlad sitting in her lap. Holika had a boon to enter fire unscathed. Legend has it that because of his extreme devotion to Lord Vishnu, Prahlad was saved while Holika paid a price for her evil desire.
