With the upcoming ‘Deepotsav’ in Ayodhya just around the corner, anyone can join the festivities by contributing as little as Rs 51 for one diya or up to Rs 1,100 for a set of 51 diyas. The unique aspect is that your diya will be lit at a chosen location of your preference, all at the click of a mouse on the specially designed virtual space created by Ayodhya Development Authority.


The dedicated online portal, hosting the e-Deepotsav, is tailored for those who wish to participate in the grand event from distant locations. The portal also provides a live stream of the events happening in Ayodhya. R.P. Yadav, deputy director of the tourism department, highlighted the initiative, saying, “The idea is to allow people to purchase e-lamps through packages in this e-Deepotsav and


feel connected to this noble event.”

The pricing structure for the lamps is as follows: Rs 51 for one, Rs 101 for eleven, Rs 501 for twenty-one, and Rs 1,100 for fifty-one. Those making bookings will have the unique opportunity to virtually illuminate their lamps from their homes at significant locations like Ram Ki Paidi, Saryu Ghats, Mutts, Temples, and


other religious places.


Moreover, participants will receive prizes such as lamps, cardamom seeds or laddu prasad, a model of the Ram temple, and souvenirs like Ramnami Gamcha and Ram Darwar, which will be sent to them via courier according to their chosen package. To be a part of the e-Deepotsav, interested individuals can log in to the ‘Holy Ayodhya Portal’ at this portal:
