Ayodhya: As more than 17 lakh diyas of earth were lit up, presenting a mesmerizing sight on the banks of the Saryu River in Ayodhya, it looked like heaven on earth.

The reflection of the diyas in the Saryu River provided a stunning sight as the laser show lit up the sky. Ayodhya rose in unison to sing ‘Jai Shri Ram’.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi lit five ghee diyas at the Ram Janambhoomi temple, where he offered prayers upon his arrival.

The lighting of diyas was a symbol of ‘Deepotsav’.

Shortly after his arrival in Ayodhya on Sunday night, Modi went to the Ram Janambhoomi temple where he offered prayers and then inspected construction work on the temple site.

He was accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

He also lit a ‘diya’ here and then interacted with the team involved in the construction of the temple.

The Prime Minister then proceeded to Ram Katha Park, where he performed Lord Ram’s ‘abhishek’.

Addressing the meeting, the Prime Minister said that Lord Ram belonged to the whole country and that it was the duty of every compatriot to follow the path shown by Lord Ram.

He added that one should learn from Lord Ram how to get and give dignity and take everyone together.

“Our constitution also speaks of inclusion and fundamental rights and duties. This Diwali is special for all of us because it comes on ‘Amrit Kaal’, which marks 75 years of independence,” he said.

Modi added that Lord Ram, Ram Lila, Deepotsav and the investigation on Lord Ram were spreading Lord Ram’s message around the world.

He said that cultural development was leading to comprehensive development.

“Nishad Raj Park and the Hoe Queen Monument are examples of this. This kind of development will not only strengthen ties between people but also create employment,” she added.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said that it was with the inspiration of the Prime Minister that he started the Deepotsav program in 2017 and that the event has become bigger with each passing year.

He added that the Kashi Vishwanath Dham corridor and the upcoming Krishna corridor in Mathura were also projects being completed with the inspiration of the Prime Minister.

Modi then performed ‘aarti’ on the banks of the Saryu River, after which people were treated to a brilliant green fireworks display and laser show.
