South Korean first lady Kim Jung-sook attended the record-breaking event after meeting with Indian PM Narendra Modi during her four-day visit to the country. Kim Jung-sook presence was important because of a Korean legend that a princess from Ayodhya travelled to Korea and married a king, becoming a Korean queen in A.D. 48.
Yogi Adityanath, the 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. A similar attempt failed to break the record last year when strong winds blew over many of the lamps.
