Diwali stamps from around the world

Diwali – The festival of lights is a five-day festival celebrated in India. Diwali is observed by Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, and other communities around the world. Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word “Deepavali,” which means “a row of lights; nocturnal illumination.” Hence, fireworks are a big part of the tradition, and diyas (oil lamps) are displayed throughout homes and temples. Every country commemorates the joyous festival of Diwali by issuing Diwali stamps, and here we are bringing the collection of such stamps issued by different countries.
