Deepavali Celebrations 2015 in Melbourne

Deepavali is the most famous Indian festival in Australia. Melbourne celebrates Deepavali with all the festivities one can otherwise experience only in India. The Victorian Government provides financial support to most of these celebrations in Melbourne.

Diwali is the five days festivity period which begins on Dhanteras and ends on Bhaiya Dooj. However, in Maharashtra Diwali festivities begin one day earlier on Govatsa Dwadashi while in Gujarat Diwali festivities begin two days earlier on Agyaras and culminates on Labh Panchami. Goddess Lakshmi is the most significant deity during Diwali Puja.
