Pakistan President Prevez Musharraf's mother Zarin arrived in New Delhi on Wednesday with Musharraf's son and elder brother.
Zarin's visit will take her to her ancestral home in the walled city and to Aligarh and Lucknow.
Zarin, a graduate of Aligarh Muslim University, arrived by a Pakistan International Airways flight and was received by Pakistan High Commissioner Aziz Ahmed Khan.
Zarin, accompanied by Musharraf's son Bilal and elder brother Javed, will leave for Aligarh on Thursday where she would be meeting the vice-chancellor of AMU, official sources said.
While Javed is a retired Pakistani civil servant, Bilal was an acturial analyst.
The three will be spending Friday and Saturday in the national capital during which they plan to visit Naharwali Haveli in the walled city of Delhi, where Musharraf spent his childhood.
They will visit Lucknow on March 20 where Zarin had attended college.
Zarin had expressed her desire to visit Agra but the trip is not confirmed yet.
The three might watch a cricket match between India and Pakistan, but nothing is fixed yet. They are scheduled to return home on March 21.
