Deepavali


Deepavali is a significant festival for the Hindi population in Singapore, with the central location being focused on Little India. The name means 'row of lights' and so the festival is brightly lit with lights strung across the streets celebrating the victory of light over darkness and the time to start anew. If you're visiting Singapore during the Deepavali festival then a walk along Little India is essential.
As its a Hindu festival, a visit to one of the main Hindu temples is also worth it such as Sri Veeramakaliamman temple. Beyond that, there are numerous concerts, parties, firework displays and of course the official turning on ceremony. Enjoy Deepavali in Singapore.
