This momentous occasion honours the relationship and love between brothers and sisters. The fifth day of Diwali is dedicated to Bhai Dooj celebrations. The celebration is held two days after Diwali. Bhai Phonta, Bhaiya Dooj, Bhau Beej, Bhatra Dwitiya, Bhai Dwitiya, and Bhathru Dwithiya are other names for Bhai Dooj. According to legend, Lord Krishna visited his sister Subhadra on the day that is now known as Diwali after slaying the demon Narakasura. Subhadra welcomed him by donning a tilak on his forehead. This day has since become known as Bhai Dooj. (Also read: Diwali 2022 Calendar: Dhanteras to Bhai Dooj, know all about the date and puja timings for 5 days of Deepavali )
