Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty had visited India in September last year for the G20 Summit.
This was Mr Sunak’s first visit to India since becoming prime minister. At the G20 gala dinner – hosted by President Droupadi Murmu , Mr Sunak and Ms Akshata were seen interacting with several union ministers including Nirmala Sitharaman and Ashwini Kumar Choubey.
The couple also visited the Akshardham temple in Delhi and offered prayers.
Mr Sunak and Ms Murty were then greeted by swamis, as well as senior leaders from the Akshardham Mandir, who relayed a special message on behalf of Mahant Swami Maharaj, spiritual leader of the Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS).
The British prime minister spent almost one hour at the temple as he performed ‘darshan and puja’ there.
