Diwali

Event

Diwali or Deepavali, otherwise known as the "Festival of Lights" is an annual Hindu religious festival, which takes place usually in October or November. The sacred festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil-of light over darkness. It also honors Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of light, beauty, riches and spiritual wealth. The night is transformed into a breathtaking spectrum of light as families light thousands of diyas (small clay vessels filled with oil).
