This video is massively viral on Facebook with the same caption.
Video from China
Alt News broke down the video into multiple keyframes. Upon reverse searching one of them, we came across a Chinese fact-check report from last year when the clip was widespread in China with varied false claims. Readers are requested to access the website through Tor browser or VPN.
According to the report, the video shows an ancient war-themed water light show in a park in China’s Fuyang, Anhui. It also carries a screenshot of Hangzhou police’s statement. The statement was uploaded on September 10, 2019, on Chinese social networking platform weibo.com.
The police clarified that the video is of the ancient war-themed water show “War of Shunchang” in Shuangqingwan Park, Fuyang, Anhui.
There are also other videos of the water and light show at Shuangqingwan Park available on YouTube.
Therefore, an old video from China has been falsely shared as water fountain and light show in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur.
