One thought on “Deepavali bazaars

  1. Celebrating deepavali in malaysia is really a fun. It is a colorful cultural Hindu festival which brings joy and happiness to Indians around the world. Deepavali is being celebrated for thousand of years with the same spirit as it is inherited. Jalan Tunku Abdurrehmn in KL is the best place to shop for deepavali.
