Diwali

October

Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

If there is one place that celebrates Diwali like no other, it is Varanasi – The Holy City of India. Approximately observed 18 days after the victory of Lord Rama over the Ravana, Diwali spans over five days, each of which has a different significance. The first day is Dhanteras, followed by Choti Diwali, Badi Diwali, Govardhan Pooja (and New Year) while the last day is Bhai Dooj.

As if coloured by an artist’s palette, Varanasi gets a breathtaking makeover during Deepavali. The moonless sky reverberates with the sound of firecrackers and the shimmering of thousands of earthen lamps that dot the fifty odd ghats alongside the holy Ganges promise a mesmerising sight.
