  • Justin Trudeau visits iconic Taj Mahal with family

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the Taj Mahal in Agra on Sunday with his family.

During his week-long official visit, the Canadian PM is also expected to meet business leaders in Mumbai and visit Indian monuments like Agra's Taj Mahal, Amritsar's Golden Temple, and New Delhi's Jama Masjid.

The family, including wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, and kids Xavier, 10, Ella-Grace, 9, and Hadrien, 3, emerged from the plane and delivered a traditional Indian welcome greeting, with their hands clasped together and their heads slightly bowed, to the delight of officials and Indian media waiting on the ground.

He is scheduled to hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Friday.

This is Trudeau's maiden visit to the country.
