Hi guys
My plans this year means that I won't be able to be in Varanasi for Dev Deepavali on the 14 November, but I can be around for Diwali on Sun 30 October.

Are the celebations similar for each event? ie 1000's of diyas placed on the ghats, fireworks etc..

Orchha was really cool in 2014, with loads of street performers, music, fireworks etc, I'm hoping Varanasi would top it

Any recommendation where to be during the celebrations? I'll be taking both my GoPro and Osmo.

Sorry to use your thread, but I too will be in Varanasi for Diwali this year. Would be interesting to know what to expect?

Dev Deepavali on the 14 November would be grander than Deepavali on 30 October 2016.

Please have a view of Dev Deepawali at Varanasi here.
