President U Htin Kyaw and his wife Daw Su Su Lwin arrived back in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday after a four-day visit to India.
They were welcomed at the Nay Pyi Taw International Airport by Vice Presidents U Myint Swe and U Henry Van Thio, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Chairman of the Nay Pyi Taw Council, Commander of the Nay Pyi Taw Command and diplomats from the Indian embassy and other officials.
Before leaving India, the Myanmar delegation led by the president visited the India Gate in New Delhi yesterday morning.
The India Gate, originally called the All India War Memorial, is a war memorial located astride the Rajpath on the eastern edge of the ‘ceremonial axis’ of New Delhi, India, formerly called Kingsway. India Gate is a memorial to 82,000 soldiers of the undivided Indian Army who died in the period between 1914 and 1921 in the First World War.
In the Third Anglo-Afghan War, 13,300 servicemen’s names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, were inscribed on the gate.
The delegation also visited Akshardham, which is the divine abode of God. It is a Mandir — an abode of God, a Hindu house of worship, and a spiritual and cultural campus dedicated to devotion, learning and harmony.—Myanmar News Agency
