Diwali, Deepavali, or Deepavali is a 4-5 day-long festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Buddhists every autumn in the northern hemisphere (spring in the southern hemisphere). The dates may vary as per the Hindu Calendar. Without a doubt, it is the most famous festival of Hinduism, symbolizing the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”
Every state of India celebrates the festival differently, and the festival illuminates the entire nation to a surprising extent.
In Jaipur, the festival marks the beginning of the tourism season. It is also the biggest festival of Hindus in India and abroad. Diwali is also called Deepawali, which means the festival of lights. The entire City is lightened up, especially the older parts, so that the City people take a tour to see the grandeur. The shops use the lights to make a mark each innovatively.
The five days festival is celebrated differently, each having its rituals and to-do things.
Day 1 is Dhanteras; Day 2 is Choti Diwali, Day 3 is Diwali, Day 4 is Govardhan Pooja, and the festivities end with day 5 being Bhai dooj.
