French President Emmanuel Macron visited the Dargah Nizamuddin Aulia in Delhi on Friday evening, officials said.
Emmanuel Macron was the chief guest at the 75th Republic Day celebrations at Delhi’s Kartavya Path.
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.
Earlier, President Droupadi Murmu received her French counterpart Emmanuel Macron at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and hosted a banquet in his honour.
Welcoming President Emmanuel 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”.
