Deepotsav (also spelt as ‘Deepotsava’) in Ayodhya – An event that was planned and conceptualized by Tornos in 2016 is now a landmark event of Government of Uttar Pradesh since 2017. Ceremonial lighting of record number of earthen lamps is the highlight and then there is laser show and projection mapping detailing the return of Lord Rama along with his wife Mata Sita and younger brother Lord Laxmana mark the celebrations. 

Deepotsav celebration falls a day earlier than the actual Diwali (also called Deepavali) celebration and is a must visit. Tornos as a part of this package organises two days of tour to Ayodhya. The first day is about the visit to the temples of Ayodhya, curated lunch and stay at Ayodhya at a semi luxury home-stay and next day is for a morning visit of the Ghat, boating on the sacred river Saryu and finally privileged participation in the celebration Deepotsava. This includes VVIP access to our cars and guests and seating in an exclusive “Tornos Guests’ Enclosure” for best view and photography.
