We have performed neutron powder diffraction experiments at JRR-3 using polycrystalline Ho$$_5$$Pd$$_2$$. The magnetic peaks with a propagation vector k = (0.18, 0.18, 0.18) are gradually developing below about 100 K. The peak width is significantly broader than an experimental resolution even temperature is 5 K. These results indicate that Ho$$_5$$Pd$$_2$$ is a short-range ordered antiferromagnet with a long wave length.
