| Celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights at Agra |

Diwali, also known as Deepavali is the biggest, brightest, and most important festival celebrated in India. The name Deepavali is derived from the neatly arranged row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) in Indians outside homes. The ritual symbolizes the inner light that protects one from spiritual darkness. Diwali in India is celebrated over a course of five days every year in the month of October or November. While the story and rituals observed during Diwali in different regions of India differ, the essence remains constant, the celebration of life and goodness.
