Celebrate Diwali - the Festival of Lights

Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. The festival itself extends over five jubilant and celebrative days. It is marked by lines of lamps, fireworks and the exchange of sweets and gifts that all lend to the grandeur of this occasion. Diwali festival is one of the most auspicious and grand occasions which is celebrated with great zeal and warmth among all races and religions.


Festival of lights

In India, Diwali represents a time when streetscapes are adorned with small, decorated earthenware oil lamps called diyas. Mythology has it that the lamps are lit to help the goddess of wealth and prosperity Lakshmi find her way into peoples homes. Every home - lowly or mighty - the hut of the poor or the mansion of the rich - shines with the glow of twinkling diyas or candles to welcome Lakshmi.

Regardless of the mythological explanation, what the festival of lights stands for a reaffirmation of hope and a renewed commitment to friendship, goodwill and prosperity for all in its true essence it is a celebration of the joys of life.

The Taj Samudra celebrates Diwali at the South lawn on November 9. Guests are invited to experience a spectacular display of fireworks while dancing to the latest Bollywood tracks spun by their DJ and indulging in a lavish festive dinner of authentic Indian extravagance.
