The festival of Lohri is associated with the story of Dulla Bhatti. According to the story, Dulla Bhatti lived in Punjab during the reign of Emperor Akbar. In addition to looting money from the rich and the zamindars, they liberated the Hindu girls being forcibly sold. He also arranged for Hindu girls to marry all those girls to Hindu boys and provided them with a dowry. Due to which he became the hero of the people of Punjab.
