Diwali in Trafalgar Square

Diwali celebrations take place in the heart of London at Trafalgar Square. With festivities, food and performances, floating candles in the fountains, lights and saris draping the square, the square is transformed for this important Hindu Festival of Light.

Diwali creates a magical world of joy and festivity, celebrating the victory of good over evil and the glory of light over darkness. Many gods preside over this festival, but the most important is Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and material prosperity.

In London people celebrate by flocking to exchange presents with their friends and families. Homes are ritualistically cleaned and decorated and hundreds of lamps are lit. In essence, Diwali marks new beginnings and a renewal of commitment to family values and represents joy, love and reflection.
