A red carpet has been laid in Ayodhya for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will visit Ayodhya on Sunday evening to attend ‘Deepotsav’ programs. After visiting Ram Lalla at the Ram Janmabhoomi temple, the Prime Minister will also watch a laser show in Ayodhya.
Head priest Acharya Satyendra Das said, “All preparations have been made for the special puja at Ram Janmabhoomi on the Prime Minister’s visit.”
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will show the Prime Minister the work going on in the Ram temple under construction at Ram Janmabhoomi.
Elaborate security arrangements have been made throughout Ayodhya for the Prime Minister’s visit.
The Prime Minister will also attend the program at Ram Katha Park where the symbolic coronation of Lord Rama and Sita will take place. After this, he will light the first earthen lamp at the grand Ram Ki Paidi Ghat.
About 15 lakh diyas have been laid on Ram ki Paidi and 37 other ghats. Ayodhya administration will try to create a new Guinness World Record by lighting 15 lakh diyas in the sixth edition of Deepotsav at these ghats. Another three lakh diyas will be lit at important intersections and places.
The Ayodhya administration had set a world record last year by lighting 9,41,551 diyas at Deepotsav. But this record was broken by lighting 11,71,78 diyas on Mahashivratri on the banks of Shipra in Ujjain.
The special thing is that the Prime Minister will also attend the Saryu Aarti.
A laser show depicting multiple scenes from Ramayana will be presented in front of Prime Minister Modi and Yogi Adityanath at Ram Ki Paidi Ghat on Sunday.
The Ayodhya administration has decided to present eight 25-minute laser shows for the local people after Modi leaves Ayodhya.
These will start at 9 pm and will continue till 1 pm. The shows will also be presented on Diwali on October 24.
This will be Modi’s second visit to Ayodhya as Prime Minister. Earlier he had performed ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ of Ram temple on August 5, 2020. PLC/GT
