Diwali, the festival of lights, will be celebrated with great fervour and enthusiasm on Sunday. On this day, houses are decorated with lights as well as flowers, accompanied by Goddess Lakshmi's puja.

According to mythology, the annual festival of Diwali celebrates the victory of the King of Ayodhya, Lord Rama, over the demon king Ravana of the kingdom of Lanka. Diwali is the day when Lord Rama, Goddess Sita, Lakshman, and Lord Hanuman, returned to Ayodhya, after 14 years of exile. The festival is celebrated in the Hindu month of Kartika. Diwali coincides with the darkest day of the year, known as Amavasya. The day is the darkest of the Hindu lunisolar calendar.

As per the legend, the kingdom of Ayodhya had lit up with earthen lamps or diyas, with people rejoicing and celebrating the return of Lord Rama. The Kingdom of Ayodhya was lit up with earthen lamps, and people decorated their houses with diyas, rejoicing and celebrating the homecoming of Lord Rama.
