Diwali night in Rajasthan

Rajasthan is said to be the land of festivals and fair. Diwali one of the biggest festivals in Rajasthan is celebrated by illuminating the streets with traditional earthen lamps or diyas. During the time of the festival Rajasthan will become more alive with fairs and night will be in the hands of fireworks.

The mythological story behind the origin of Diwali or Deepavali can be traced back to Ramayana (Hindu epic). The whole kingdom of Ayodhya celebrated the return of Lord Rama after fourteen years of exile by lighting diyas (earthen lamps). Since then, lighting diyas has become an integral part of the festivities of Diwali.
