Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya witnessed grand Deepostav celebrations with lakhs of diyas on the eve of Diwali and broke its own world record.

About 22.23 lakh diyas were lit at the same time across 51 ghats in Ayodhya to create a new Guinness World Record.

The 22,23 lakh ‘diyas’ (earthen lanterns) were lit by 25,000 volunteers at the 51 ghats of Ram Ki Paidi along the river.

The lamps were counted by using drones and gave them the status of world record to the city. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath received a certificate from the Guinness Book of World Records and extended warm greetings to the entire Ayodhya and its residents.
