Dev Diwali is one of the most popular festivals in Varanasi. It happens on the full moon night during the Hindu month of Karthik (Karthik Purnima). Thousands of visitors come to Varanasi on this day to see the city decorated in its best during the festival.

People take bath in the ghats in the morning, but the real fun is in the evening, when each and every ghat is decorated with lamps. It is one of the most spectacular sights I have ever seen in my life.

Tips for photographers

Be A Light
Be ready to walk a lot; really a lot.
Wear slippers not shoes.
Get going before daybreak, take some rest in the afternoon and come back in the evening.
Don't stick to one place for long (unless you are sure about a shot) - keep moving.
