Deepavali is the most important festival in the Hindu almanac which is also known as a major event in Singapore’s festival calendar. Popularly known as the Festival of Lights, Singapore comes together as one to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and of light over darkness. The celebrations begin with the 'Switch-On Ceremony' in Little India, when the whole cultural precinct is bedazzled with a canopy of lights and bustling bazaars that heighten the festive aura.
