Celebrate a Vibrant and Joyful Diwali in Udaipur

While Udaipur is known for its palaces and tales of brave Rajput rulers, it is also popular among many tourists for the zestful celebrations during its festivals. Such occasions give the locals a chance to break free from their monotonous routines and meet up with close friends and relatives. Diwali is one of these festivals, which has now become popular worldwide as the 'festival of lights'.
Origins of this festival can be found in tales from the Hindu mythology. According to events described in Ramayana, the entire kingdom of Ayodhya was lit up with earthen lamps to celebrate the homecoming of Lord Rama after his exile of 14 years and victory over the demon king, Ravana. Even today, Diwali is welcomed by Udaipur's residents with bright lamps lit in their homes, as in the ancient times. The evening sky glows with the sparkle of fireworks, creating an atmosphere of immense joy.

Diwali is a time for the locals of Udaipur to clean and decorate their homes, wear new clothes and enjoy some mouth-watering dishes. Tourists staying at any of the hotels or resorts in Udaipur while vacationing during Diwali season can also have the chance enjoy the delicious varieties of local sweets along with the people of Udaipur.
