Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attended a Dussehra event at Dwarka, where he shot an arrow at the giant effigy of Ravana and it was burned to ashes.
Giant effigies of Meghnad and Kumbhakaran were also set ablaze.
Prime Minister Modi was given a traditional welcome by organisers on the dais at the venue, as a sea of crowd waited eagerly to watch 'Lanka Dahan'.
Modi was welcomed with a shawl and statue of Ram Durbar, and was also gifted a mace.
Dussehra celebrations mark the end of nine-day festivities of 'Navratra'. The tradition of burning of effigies signifies the triumph of good over evil.
