Significance of Diwali

The festival of lights, Diwali, is celebrated on the day of Amavasya during the eighth month of the Hindu Panchang i.e. the month of Kartik every year.

People welcomed the Lord with a warm heart and rejoiced his return by decorating the entire kingdom and lighting Diyas/lamps.
