Diwali Divali, or Deepawali Diya is a small earthen lamp, specially lit at the Indian Festival Of Lights Diwali. They are usually made of clay. Ghee or oil is used as fuel and cotton as a wick. Although today’s electric lights replace the earthen Diyas, there is still the charm of traditional Diwali Hindu lamps. These Diwali Diya are used to pray to the gods and the late grandmothers and grandfathers floated on leaves over the holy rivers, such as the Ganges in Haridwar. They have long been associated with the tradition of divas and today are the most integral part of all the decorations of Diwali.

The Tradition of Diwali Diyas:

It is said that when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile, people were happy to see him with Sita and Lakshman. Since it was a no moon night, people lit candles and diyas on the way of Lord Rama. Once he reached to his house, there was a dazzling display of fireworks. Everyone sang, danced at the feast and welcomed their king with open arms and hearts. Since then, every year, this day is celebrated as Diwali, and Diwali Diya became the most conspicuous feature. Today, these small clay lamps can be found in every house, office and temple.

Different types of Diyas:

Beautifully crafted diyas attract the attention of the buyers. The earthen diya used on Diwali reflects an ancient design that is simple and stunning in its concept and versatile in its handling.


During Diwali, various shops show brilliant diwali diyas and lamps made by ceramic designers from all over the country. There are also diyas with zari and a mirror in exuberant colours. It’s amazing that imaginary diagonals with sharp cutting edges, decorated with cutting works, are covered with bright colored wax.
