Ayodhya’s ‘Deepotsav’ enters Guinness Book of World Records

Shri Ram’s Janmbhoomi Ayodhya was illuminated on November 03 as the Uttar Pradesh government’s Tourism Department lit nine lakh earthen lamps on the occasion of Diwali, creating a world record. Ram Ki Pauri in Ayodhya was lit with innumerable oil lamps, laser shows and crackers on the occasion of Deepotsav creating mesmerizing imagery.

With the largest number of diyas lit during the Deepotsav, it won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took to Twitter to share the Guinness World Record certificate.

“In the holy city of Shri Ayodhya, the banks of Saryu have come alive with lightings. With the spirit of truth, affection and world welfare, a world record has been set for lighting the maximum number of lamps with Vedic chants. This record is a result of the faith and belief of the devotees of Lord Shri Ram. I want to extend my greetings to everyone who participated in this Deepotsav program,” the CM Tweeted.

The city of Ayodhya broke its own Guinness record made last year when the citizens lit 5,84,572 earthen lamps on the banks of Saryu.
