We believe that on this day Lord Rama, along with his consort Sita and loyal brother Lakshman was returning to his hometown Ayodhya after 14 long years of exile in the forest. Rama had finished battling with the king of Ceylon, Ravana, who had abducted Sita. So the people of Ayodhya lit lamps in every home to welcome their true King and celebrate his victory over Ravana and also the safe return of their Queen Sita.
