Every year between mid-October and mid-November, the sound of firecrackers announces the celebration of India's favourite festival, Diwali. Homes are decorated, gifts are given, sweets are shared and thousands of lamps are lit to create a five-day visual spectacle like no other.
While Diwali means different things to different cultures, it is always a celebration of the victory of good over evil, with the abundance of lights signifying the inner good of people.
Celebrate Diwali in several different Indian locations with a Flight Centre holiday tour. Experience everything from the ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri to a traditional Diwali dinner in the grounds of Julelal Temple.
