Sabarmati (Gujarat) [India] | February 19, 2018 12:01:13 AM IST
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday visited the Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, along with his family.

Earlier in the day, the family visited the Gandhi Ashram at Sabarmati where he wrote in the visitors' book that it was "a beautiful place of peace, humility and truth, that is as needed today as it ever was."

Trudeau, his wife Sophie and children Xavier, Hadrien and Ella-Grace adorned Indian ethnic clothes on both the visits.

On Sunday, Trudeau and family had visited the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra and a wildlife sanctuary in Mathura.

The Canadian Prime Minister who landed in New Delhi on Saturday is also scheduled to visit Amritsar, Ahmedabad, and Mumbai.

The visit will provide an opportunity for Trudeau to connect with the Indian leaders in government and business, promote empowerment of women and girls, and strengthen Canada and India's close economic ties.

The Indian and Canadian sides will reaffirm the close friendship between the two countries and discuss ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation.

Trudeau will also participate in several business roundtables to promote further trade and investment between Canada and India.

Canada will work closely with the Indian leaders to advance their economic opportunities in both countries respectively. (ANI)
