Prime Minister Narendra Modi had an enjoyable Sunday morning as he visited two ancient temples in Kyoto -- Toji Temple and Kinkaku-ji (or Golden Pavilion) temple. Tourists at temples were trilled to see the India PM -- some posed for pictures with him; a few others queued up for autographs.
Here are some top moments from Modi’s Kyoto trip.
"I am Modi and you are Mori!" This is how Modi charmed the head priest of the ancient 14th century Buddhist temple.
Dressed in all-white kurta pyjama, sleeveless jacket and white sandals, apparently to send out a message of solemnity of the occasion, he spent some time with the 83-year-old head priest Yasu Nagamori of Kinkaku-ji temple, spokesman for the External Affairs Ministry, Syed Akbaruddin tweeted.
