Festivals bring us together and spread joy. In this spirit, the transport authority in Singapore decided to celebrate Diwali in a fun way this year.

Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), the lifeline of Singapore, launched its first Diwali-themed train on 15 October.

On Saturday, Land Transport Authority – We Keep Your World Moving shared a series of photographs of the Diwali-themed train on its official Facebook page.

The train's coaches and the Little India train station have been decked up with images of gorgeous diyas, rangolis and other evocative decorations -- all illuminating the spirit of the festival of lights.

The train will be running on the North East Line until mid-November.

The 'Land Transport Authority – We Keep Your World Moving' Facebook post read, "Get ready to celebrate the Festival of Lights in a whole new illuminating way this year! We've launched our first #Deepavali themed train today and you can now experience part of the stunning decorations at Little India right inside the#MRT. Decked out in this year's Deepavali theme, the train features elegant elements such as intricate Indian jewelleries, the lotus and peacock – a symbol of good luck."
