Ayodhya Deepotsav: Over 22 Lakh Diyas Light Up Ayodhya in Magnificent Deepotsav Festival

Ayodhya Deepotsav: The festivities got underway in the afternoon with a magnificent parade that included eighteen magnificent tableaux that portrayed the persona of Lord Ram.

The seventh “Deepotsav,” or Diwali celebration, was held in Ayodhya on Saturday. The Uttar Pradesh government organized the event.

According to PTI, the festivities started with a magnificent Deepotsav parade that had eighteen regal and celestial tableaux that portrayed the persona of Lord Ram.

Starting from Ayodhya’s Udaya Square, the tableau depicting the life of Lord Ram traveled to Ram Katha Park. Minister of Tourism and Culture Jaiveer Singh led the parade.

This magnificent procession served as a forum for religious expression for artists from throughout the nation.

On this occasion, the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, which is still under construction, has also been decorated. Additionally, devotees visited the Ram Janamabhoomi in Ayodhya and prayed to Lord Ram.

According to PTI, Singh declared, “A new record for lighting the most diyas (lamps) in the world will be set once again.” This festival of lights will see the coronation of Lord Ram performed by CM Yogi Adityanath. The participation of diplomats from fifty major nations for Lord Shri Ram’s coronation will be the most significant factor.”

He continued by saying that the festival of lights brings to everyone’s mind “Tretayug,” the occasion when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya following his conquest of Lanka and that the joyous reception the people of Ayodhya gave him then is still clearly reflected in the streets of the city today.

The symbolic coronation of Lord Shri Ram was also carried out by the chief minister. According to PTI, they were also showered with flowers from a chopper.

Speaking at the event, Adityanath remarked that as the Deepotsav program started, it seemed as though everyone was hoping for the construction of the city’s Ram Temple.

“There was a state of bewilderment when we started Ayodhya’s Deepotsav seven years ago…However, it has grown into a significant program and an international event today,” he remarked, as reported by ANI.

The chief minister went on to say that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s establishment of “Ram Rajya” in India following his victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections is strengthened by the building of the Ram Temple.

A world record was set when more than 22 lakh traditional earthen lamps, or diyas, at 51 ghats of the Saryu River were lit simultaneously in the temple city.

Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Path is also being decked out in various floral arrangements in honor of Deepotsav as part of the festivities.

In an attempt to break the world record, more than 25,000 volunteers from Avadh University and the Ayodhya district government were asked to light the diyas simultaneously. At the event was a team from the Guinness Book of World Records. Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister, was awarded a certificate for the achievement.

Brijesh Pathak, the deputy chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, informed ANI earlier today that all hospitals are kept ready to handle any emergency.

At Deepotsav, a new record will be set today. Over fifty countries’ envoys are scheduled to attend this event today. He stated that all hospitals are on alert mode in case there is an incident brought on by firecrackers going off.

People from all over the nation, including tribal people from Jharkhand’s Pakur district, will take part in and watch the huge Deepotsav as part of the major event.

To attend the celebration, some 48 tribal people from Pakur traveled barefoot to the birthplace of Lord Ram. The Jharkhand Pradesh Shri Ram Janaki Charitable Service Trust has sent these residents to the mountainous area.

51 thousand lamps were lit during Ayodhya’s inaugural grand festival of lights, which was launched following the BJP government’s inception in 2017.

A Guinness World Record was set in 2022 when 15.76 lakh lamps were lit at Ram ki Pauri in Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in this event as well last year.
