Ram Lalla’s home, Ram Mandir of Ayodhya, is all ready before the main festival day on the occasion of Diwali. The Yogi Adityanath government has informed that it will light up the historic Ram Mandir with twelve lakh diyas. This will be the 5th edition of the Deepotsav.

Around nine lakh diyas will light up the banks of the Saryu River from 6:00 to 6:30 pm. Additionally, this is not the first time that Ram Mandir will see all the lights.

The festival celebrations began on November 1. Additionally, on this date, Shilp Bazaar was set in motion at Ram Katha Park.

The UP government has also released a statement about the preparations. It reads that the entire celebration will cover five days starting from Monday. These days will have 3-D displays, laser shows as well as fireworks. Additionally, this will also be the first time when an aerial drone will cover all the scenes on the occasion of Diwali in the Ayodhya Ram Mandir. Moreover, information suggests that at least 500 drones will fly over the skylines of this historic temple.
