The anniversary celebration commemorates the killing of Ravan, ”King of Lanka” (who kidnapped Seetha) by Lord Rama. The epic “Ramayan” refers to how Rama, the eight manifestation of god Vishnu, killed Ravana in Satyug.

The day is begun by a ritual bath at sunrise, which is akin tohaving a bath in the sacred river Ganga. Houses are decorated with hundreds of small oil lamps during the late evening hours.
