Ayodhya: The holy city of Ayodhya on Friday (November 13, 2020) made a new record by lighting over 5.84 lakh diyas as part of the 'Deepotsav' celebrations.

The celebrations have now made it to the Guinness World records for 'the largest display of oil lamps' that were lit on the banks of river Saryu in Ayodhya.

6,06,569 diyas were lit as part of the first Deepotsav celebrations since the Supreme Court's verdict on the Ram Temple Construction.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who also participated in the Deepotsav celebrations dedicated the record to the Ram devotees.

He said that they're going to light 7.51 lakh diyas in 2021.

He also offered prayers to Lord Ram at the Ram Janmabhoomi site and performed an 'aarti'.

CM Yogi said that it was because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that devotees across the world could see the Ram Mandir construction.

"For several years, the devotees across the world wished to see the construction work of the grand temple of Lord Ram. Their wish was fulfilled by PM Narendra Modi," said CM Yogi.
