Karthik Poornima celebrated in the month of November-December is the sacred day, when the ghats of Varanasi come alive with thousands of brightly-lit earthern lamps. Visitors throng in large numbers to watch this spectacular event, famous as 'Dev Deepawali'.
Kartik Poornima is very auspicious and religious day for the Jains. This is the day of ‘Nirvana’ of Lord Mahavira, the twenty-fourth Tirthankara. To them it is the 'Deva Diwali' when Lord Mahavira is worshiped, Jain holy books, Agams are read and homes and temples are illuminated. Lamps are lit under the moonlight sky and a family feast celebrates this day. Jains celebrate it by visiting 'Palitana' one of the most famous Jain pilgrimage places.
