According to some legends, the story of Dhanteras revolves around the sixteen-year-old son of king Hmia who was doomed to die on the fourth day of his marriage due to a venomous snake bite. When his wife came to know about the prediction she didn't let anyone in the house sleep on the fourth night of marriage rather she heaped all her ornaments and gold coins in the front of the door and sang songs. When Lord Yama who is known as the god of death reached their doorstep, he was mesmerized by the shinning ornaments he sat there and listened to her songs all night. Thus the young prince was saved from the hands of death and the day came to be known and celebrated as DHANTERAS.
