Dev Deepavali, also known as Dev Diwali or the Diwali of the Gods, is a Hindu festival celebrated in the holy city of Varanasi (Banaras) in India. It usually occurs 15 days after Diwali, on the full moon day in the month of Kartik. Dev Deepavali is a grand celebration marked by the lighting of thousands of earthen lamps (diyas) along the ghats of the Ganges River.

Devotees and pilgrims gather to celebrate the divine festival, adding an ethereal charm to the ancient city’s spiritual aura.
