London lit up for Ramadan for the first time ever

London was lit up for the capital’s first Ramadan lights to celebrate the start of the Islamic holy month.

In the first ever celebratory lights, London Mayor Sadiq Khan switched on the display in Piccadilly Circus that will illuminate the capital during the month of Ramadan.

This is the first time a European city has put on such a display for the festival and the installation includes 30,000 sustainable lights.

This has been done to mark the holy month of Ramadan in London, a city of 1.3 million Muslims, and across the country.
