A new world record was set in the holy city of Ayodhya on the eve of Diwali on Tuesday with over three lakh "diya" or earthen lamps lit up simultaneously on the banks of the Sarayu river, officials said.

The feat was achieved in the presence of Adityanath and South Korean first lady Kim-Jung Sook.

Yogi Adityanath, chief minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh, was given a certificate certifying the record by Guinness officials who had monitored the attempt with drone cameras. The two leaders also perform "aarti" on banks of the river.

"Last time we missed it by a whisper but this time we ensured that all the lamps were aglow".

"It beat the earlier record set in Haryana in 2016, where at an event 1,50,009 diyas were lit", Nath said and hailed the new record as "phenomenal".

The target was to light 3.35 lakh diyas on both sides of ghats at Ram Ki Paidi in Ayodhya.
