Ayodhya 'Deepotsav' 2020: Yogi government sets Guinness world record, lights over 6 lakh diyas
Last Updated : 14 Nov 2020 04:26:51 AM IST


Ayodhya on Friday created a new Guinness world record by lighting 6,06,569 diyas 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.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath lit the first diya at Ram Ki Paidi ghat. Governor Anandiben Patel was also present for the occasion.
Hundreds of temples and maths dotting Ayodhya were also lit up for the occasion. Almost the entire town was decked up with colourful lights.
In the 2018 Deepotsav also, a Guinness record of lighting 3.1 lakh diyas was set.
After the BJP government came to power in UP (March 2017), the Yogi government has been organising Deepotsav celebration in Ayodhya on the eve of Diwali.
