Inside Ayodhya's grand 'Deepotsav' 2020 celebrations

Inside Ayodhya

Ayodhya kept its Guinness World Record for a second straight year by lighting 6,06,569 diyas and keeping them burning for at least 45 minutesat at the majestic Ram Ki Paidi ghat on the banks of the Saryu river and other ghats of the temple town during the fourth Deepotsav. Ram Ki Paidi, a series of ghats, wore a celestial look with lakhs of earthen diyas illuminating it in the backdrop of the Saryu riverbank. A Guinness team was present to judge the event. By creating this world record, the Ayodhya administration broke its own record it set last year by lighting 4,10,000 diyas.
