About Dev Diwali:
Dev Diwali or Dev Deepawali is a famous festival celebrated on the auspicious day of Kartik Purnima at the holy city Varanasi. This festival marks the victory of Lord Shiva over demon Tripurasur. Hence Dev Diwali is also known as Tripurotsav.
On the day of Kartik Purnima, devotees take holy dip in River Ganges and light earthen lamps or Diyas in the evening. After sun set, the steps of all Ghats on the riverfront of the Ganges are lit with millions of earthen lamps, which is a wonderful sight to watch. Not only the Ghats of Ganges, but every home and temples of Benares are lit with millions of Diyas.
