Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya this year need no introduction. In a Treta yuga redux of the victors returning to Ayodhya in the mythological Pushpak aircraft, Rama and Laxman --- along with Sita, Hanuman and Sugreev --- took off in a helicopter from the Faizabad airstrip and land at a helipad at Ram Katha Sthal, near the Ram Katha Park.
Governor Ram Naik, along with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his cabinet colleagues and Union ministers Mahesh Sharma and KJ Alphons received them.
Later, as night descended, the ghats of Ayodhya were illuminated with around 1.7 lakh diyas. Here are few of the images of the events in Ayodhya.
