The tradition of Deepotsav in Ayodhya began with the advent of the Yogi Adityanath government in 2017, initially lighting 51,000 diyas and then 4.10 lakh diyas in 2019.

The number then every year goes up with over 6 lakh diyas in 2020, and 9 lakh diyas illuminated in 2021. In 2022, over 17 lakh diyas were lit up across the Ram ki Pairi ghats.
