A Garba event organised in Gujarat's Vadodra is reported to have set a world record for the maximum number of people participating in the dance routine.
On the eighth day of Navratri, known as the 'Durga Ashtami', around 60,000 people participated in the event and danced to Garba tunes.

Vadodara is often touted to be the hotbed of such celebrations, and people in large numbers turn out at Garba events marking the fagging end of Navratri.
The city has been hosting such events at a grand scale for the past 31 years.
One such celebration in Vadodara last year hosted 35,000 participants together. Not just India, people from different countries -- France, Germany, and China -- said to have participated in the event. Ten thousand were present as the audience.
