SOUTH Korean First Lady Kim Jung-sook arrived in Ayodhya on Tuesday to attend Diwali festivities in the holy city and began her tour by offering tribute at the Queen Heo Memorial.
Kim visited the site, along with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and attended a ground-breaking ceremony for upgrade and beautification of the memorial dedicated to the legendary princess of Ayodhya who went to Korea.

Later she went to the banks of the Sarayu river to welcome artists donning the avatar of Lord Ram and Goddess Sita, who arrived at Ram Katha Park in a ceremonial chopper as part of ‘Ram Durbar’.

Kim garlanded ‘Sita’ as they descended from the helicopter
and Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik and Adityanath welcomed Lord Ram and Laxman by garlanding them.
Union Minister V K Singh also attended the grand event in Ayodhya. Kim’s stand-alone visit to India, which began on November 4, has rekindled interest in the legendary princess who married a Korean king.
