The festival of Dev Deepawali that finds mention in the Shiva Purana, is celebrated to mark the day when Lord Vishnu killed a demon named Tripura Sur who was torturing gods during the month of Kartik. After he was killed, the gods celebrated Dev Deepawali.

It is believed that on this day, all the gods and goddesses descend on Varanasi Ghats for the celebration.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister has also given directions to organize functions at all cow shelters on the occasion of ‘Gopa-Ashtami’ on November 22.
