Bright fireworks at Diwali, India's festival of light

Diwali - Festival of Lights Supplement

The Festival of Light is the most important and joyous festival in the Hindu calendar. The festival is mainly associated with lights because it is called the festival of light. People decorate their homes and put flowers and mango leaves on their doors and windows. On this day, people worship Lord Ganesha and exchange sweets and gifts with friends, relatives and neighbors. At night, countless oil lamps are lit to show Rama the way home from his period of exile. In all the festival lasts five days.

Many of our group tours coincide with Diwali, private journeys and short stays can be arranged to depart any day of your choosing. Alternatively we can tailor-make a holiday, bespoke to your requirements, allowing you to join in the celebrations.
