Also known as the festival of lights, this ancient Hindu festival celebrates the victory of light over darkness, of good over evil, and of hope over despair.
During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and offices are brightly illuminated. Including preparations and rituals, the festival typically lasts around five days, with the celebrations occurring on the third day which coincides with the darkest night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika.
