Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Rama, is gearing up for a grand spectacle of lights and celebrations during the upcoming Deep Utsav. The city is set to be illuminated with a staggering 24 lakh (2.4 million) lamps, an endeavor that aims to set a new world record. The Deep Utsav, a festival of lights, will be held at 51 prominent ghats along the banks of the Saryu River.
The administration of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University has been working tirelessly to make this year’s Deep Utsav a truly memorable event. A team of volunteers is dedicated to ensuring that all 24 lakh lamps are lit and that the celebrations run smoothly.
The highlight of the Deep Utsav will be the lighting of 21 lakh lamps on Ram Ki Pauri, the sacred bathing ghat where Lord Rama is believed to have taken a bath. This will be a world record attempt, and the administration is confident that it will be successful.
In addition to the lighting of lamps, there will also be a grand display of fireworks, cultural performances, and food stalls. The Deep Utsav is expected to attract a large number of visitors from all over India and the world.
