Statue lit up with sparklers at night

On this day Ram (the seventh avatar of Vishnu) killed Ravana, who had abducted Rama’s wife Sita to his kingdom Lanka. Rama, his brother Lakshmana, their disciple Hanuman and an army fought a battle to rescue Sita. The story is recorded in the Hindu epic, the Ramayanam.

On the day of Ashvina Shukla Dasami, Rama defeated Ravana and rescued Sita. Based on inferences from Valmiki’s Ramyanam, Kālidās’s Raghuvaṃśa, Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas and Keshavdas’ Ramchandrika, Ram, Sita and Lakshman returned to Ayodhya on the 30th day of Ashwin (19–20 days after Vijayadasami). To celebrate Rama’s return, in the evening the city’s residents lit millions of earthen lamps (deepak); the day is celebrated in India as Deepawali
