Diwali oder Dipavali oder Divali oder Deepavali (Hindi, दीवाली, dīvālī „Anordnung von Lichtern”, Tamil, தீபாவளி, dīpāvaḻī „Weg des Lichts”), das Lichterfest, ist ein bedeutendes mehrtägiges hinduistisches Fest in Indien und anderen vom Hinduismus geprägten Ländern, zum Beispiel im Inselstaat Mauritius, in Suriname sowie in der indischen Diaspora.
