Grand diwali show at Ayodhya by UP government


Ayodhya: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his cabinet has planned a grand event at Ayodhya on wednesday. A series of programmes have been scheduled to celebrate Diwali in the pilgrim town. The “Deepotsav” will be organised on the ‘Ram Ki Paidi’ where One lakh and seventy one thousand earthen lamps will glow on the banks of river Saryu as the state government’s plans to project the heritage of this temple town.

A heritage walk, a ‘yatra’ reminiscing the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya, and the launch of several schemes by the chief minister and other dignitaries will be part of the programme.

A grand “aarti” of River Saryu will also be performed by Chief Minister Adityanath and Governor Ram Naik followed by a laser show on Ramkatha.A 22-minute laser show with special sound effects on Ramayana will be the major attraction during the mega event at Ram Katha Park.

Earlier in May, the state government had re-started the popular Ram Leela at the Ayodhya Centre, after a gap of 17 months.The Yogi government has re-started the shows after sanctioning a budget for the Ram Leela.

To add a touch of fantasy to the event, a chopper decorated as the mythological ‘Pushpak Viman’, will descend on Ram Katha Park with artistes decked up to resemble Lord Ram, Sita and Laxman.

The grand event will seek to create the celebratory atmosphere witnessed in Ayodhya on mythical homecoming of Lord Rama along with wife Sita and brother Lakshman, after victory over Ravana, as narrated in the epic Ramayana.

 Prominent buildings and ghats will be illuminated to attract tourists. The objective of the entire programme will be to promote Ayodhya as a tourist destination.

The Union Tourism ministry has sanctioned Rs 133.70 crore for making Ayodhya a tourism hub.The money sanctioned will be utilised in renovating ghats, including the Guptar Ghat, where Lord Rama had taken ‘Samadhi’, installing CCTV cameras, making booths, construction of guest houses for tourists and auditorium at Digamgar Akhara.

The  Yogi government  had also sanctioned Rs 1240 crore for of Ayodhya, Varanasi and Mathura in its budget.They were called as the Ramayan, Buddhist and Krishna circuits in these cities.

Adityanath has visited Ayodhya at least twice after assuming office and launched several projects worth crores of rupees for the city. The UP government also plans to install a grand statue of Lord Ram in the city.

“The aim of the programme is to attract tourists and showcase tourism spots and the potential of Ayodhya,” official added.
