Ayodhya: Ayodhya was illuminated by fireworks and a laser show as thousands of diyas on the banks of the Sarayu River earned the town a spot in the Guinness World Records.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were in attendance to experience the spectacle.
Prior to the pyrotechnics and laser spectacle that left him speechless, the prime minister opened the Deepotsav celebration by performing an “aarti.” Hundreds of fireworks lit up the Ayodhya sky as PM Modi and CM Yogi stared on.
The laser display worked in conjunction with the diyas to illuminate the Sarayu River. Along with a massive musical laser show, PM Modi saw a 3D holographic projection mapping performance at Ram ki Paidi on the banks of the Sarayu.
Addressing the gathering, PM Modi shared that Lord Ram is a part of Ayodhya’s DNA and that he was honoured and fortunate to be there to visit Ram Lalla and offer prayers.
