The Dev Deepavali also known as "the Diwali of the Gods" or "Festival of Lights of the Gods" is the festival of Kartik Poornima celebrated in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India and is observed on the full moon of the Hindu month of Kartika.

Dev Deepawali is a very famous event celebrated every year at Varanasi. Dev Deepawali or more commonly called as Dev Diwali, is celebrated to mark the victory of Lord Shiva over demon Tripurasur (त्रिपुरासुर).  Thus Dev Deepawali Utsav is also known as Tripurotsav or Tripura Purnima Snan or Tripurari Purnima which is observed on the Kartik Purnima day.

Devotees take a dip in the holy water of Ganges on the auspicious day of Kartik Purnima and light earthen lamps or Diya(s) in the evening on Dev Deepawali day. The steps of all the Ghats on the Ganga river, from Ravidas Ghat at the southern end to Rajghat, are lit with millions of earthen lamps in honour of Maa Ganga.
