STORY: South Korean first lady, Kim Jung-sook on Monday (July 09), visited the iconic 16th century tomb belonging to Mughal emperor Humayu, in India’s capital New Delhi.
South Korean President, Moon Jae-in and Jung-sook had arrived in the Indian capital on Sunday (July 08), as a part of his first state visit to the country.
The first lady spent nearly 45 minutes at the iconic monument, which was built in the year 1570 and served as an architechtural inspiration for iconic Taj Mahal. The tomb is of a particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent.
The first lady was visiting the monument unaccompanied by the President. The two had yesterday also visited the famous Akshardham Temple, one of the most visited cultural sites in the country.
President Jae-in is on a four-day visit to India, during which he will hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on several issues, including the situation on the Korean peninsula and ways to boost bilateral trade and defence cooperation.
