No one knows when Rakhi festival started. But in the future Puranas it is said that when the war started in the gods and demons, the demon began to appear dominant. Lord Indra panicked and went to Jupiter. Indra’s wife Indrani was sitting there listening to all. He purified the thread of silk with the power of the mantras and tied it on the hands of his husband. Incidentally, it was the day of Shravan Purnima.
The story of Raksha Bandhan is found in the story called Vamanavatar in Skanda Purana, Padma Purana, and Shrimadbhav. Lord Vishnu took the Vamana incarnation to steal the arrogance of the king and to reach the begging of King Brahman in the presence of Brahmin.

There are many historical references associated with this festival. When Rajput used to go to battle, women used to wear silk thread on their forehead as well as silk thread in their hands. It was believed that this thread would bring them back with Vijayashree.
Karmavati, the queen of Mewar, received notice of Bahadur Shah attacking Mewar. The queen was unable to fight at that time, so she sent the Mughal emperor Humayun to Rakhi and pleaded for protection. Humayun, despite being a Muslim, kept the shame of Rakhi and reached Mewar and fought against Bahadur Shah on behalf of Mewar. Humayun has protected Karmavati and his state.
The story of Rakshabandhan also joins the Mahabharata. When Yudhishthira asked Lord Krishna how can I cross all the crises, then Lord Krishna advised celebrating the festival of Rakhi to protect his and his army.
In the account related to Krishna and Draupadi, it has been said that when Shrikrishna had killed Shishu Pal from Sudarshan Chakra, his index finger hurt. Draupadi had torn his sari at that time and tied a bandage on his finger. This Shravan was the full moon day of the month. Krishna had repaid this favor later by raising his sari at the time of rip-off.
