Jaipur, Rajasthan

Diwali, colloquially renowned as the “festival of lights” is celebrated in the month of Kartika. Its origins lie in the epic Ramayana – the people of Ayodhya lit diya’s (earthen lamps) on a dark new moon night to welcome their prince Rama after fourteen years of ‘vanvas’ (van-living, vas-woods).
