Diwali has a religious significance for Indians – particularly the Hindus. It’s believed that on this day Lord Rama along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana returned to their kingdom Ayodhya after 14 years in exile.
Hindus celebrate their return by lighting the lamps in their homes on Diwali day.
