Deepavali, which celebrates the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness, is the most important festival to Hindus around the world. Many Hindu worshippers light up little lamps in the doorway of their homes on the day of the festivaland in the days leading up to Deepavali, colourful lights and bustling bazaars transform the streets of Little India into a wonderland of rainbow hues. Shop for a variety of ethnic Indian garb and trinkets, as well as glittering decorations and wood carvings for the home. Indulge in sweet delicacies and inhale the scent of freshly woven floral garlands while you meander through the maze of shops. The bazaar is open till the eve of the festival and is truly a feast for all the senses.
