A similar attempt failed to break the record a year ago, when strong winds blew over numerous lamps. According to The Economic Times, the previous record was held by Dera Sacha Sauda, which had organised the largest display of 1,50,009 diyas in Sirsa in 2016.

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