After completing his first leg of his 3-day visit to China, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made his way to Beijing where the PM got down to business. After conducting delegation-level talks and addressing students and faculty at Tsinghua University, PM Modi enjoyed some down time at a Yoga Taichi event at the Temple of Heaven. 

Here are some of the best moments from Day 2 of his visit.
