French President visits Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah with Jaishankar

French President Emmanuel Macron visited the Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia Dargah in south Delhi on January 26. He was accompied by India's foreign minister S Jaishankar.

Macron offered a chadar at the shrine. He also attended cultural programmes at the dargah.

He reached the almost 700-year-old shrine -- the nerve centre of Sufi culture in India -- at 9.45 pm and remained there for more than half an hour, they said.

The dargah is the mausoleum of the famous Sufi Nizamuddin Auliya and his disciple Amir Khusrau.

Macron was the chief guest at the 75th Republic Day celebrations at Delhi's Kartavya Path.

Earlier, President Droupadi Murmu received her French counterpart Macron at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and hosted a banquet in his honour.

Welcoming President Macron, she said the leaders of the two countries being guests of honour in each other's successive National Day parade and celebrations, is a historic moment, and "a symbol of the depth of our friendship and the strength of our partnership".
