Agra: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today started his week-long visit to India with a tour of the iconic Taj Mahal, which he had first seen 35 years ago. Trudeau was accompanied by wife and three kids during the tour of white marble mausoleum on the banks of Ganga river.

 “I was about Xav’s age when I first visited the Taj Mahal almost 35 years ago… and it’s amazing to be back with him & the family on Day 1 of our trip to India,” he tweeted. The Canadian first family was visibly thrilled during the visit and posed for a picture seated on the iconic bench with the monument in the backdrop.

Trudeau had arrived yesterday in India for a week-long visit, during which he would hold talks with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on wide-ranging issues, including defence and counter-terror cooperation. He is scheduled to visit Akshardham temple in Gujarat and the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
