Diwali, or Deepavali is a significant festival for all Indian and Hindu communities in Malaysia. This year, Diwali is observed on the 24th October and will be celebrated over five days. The Festival of Lights is the time to immerse yourself in Indian culture, the sounds of exploding fireworks and savour a gastronomic Indian meal.
