The President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier arrived in India earlier day to embark on his maiden four-day visit. He was accompanied by his wife Elke Büdenbender and a delegation of media, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and indologists. Earlier in the day Germany’s First Lady Büdenbender paid a visit to the historical monument Taj Mahal situated at Agra in Uttar Pradesh.

She arrived in Agra at 1:00 PM and after lunch; she visited the Taj Mahal at 3:00 PM. She stayed for about two hours at the monument. She took a keen interest in its art and architecture. She asked about the calligraphy on the royal gate of the Taj Mahal. In the visitor’s book she wrote in German “The Taj Mahal is a wonderful monument of love”

Later, she visited Sheros Café to meet the victims of acid attack. She took interest to know about their stories.  

The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World which is considered as the most photogenic destinations of India. It is one of the most exquisite structures ever built by any emperor. It was constructed by the fifth Mughal emperor in the fond memory of his favorite wife Mumtaj Mahal. The Taj Mahal in terms of architecture, is one of the most symmetrical structures in the world, constructed using pure white marble and adorned with precious and semi precious stones. The construction started in 1631 and got completed in 1653 AD; 20,000 workers worked day and night together for 22 years.

The Steinmeier’s visit to India is considered significant after German Chancellor Angela Merkel was re-elected to the German Parliament for a record fourth term on Wednesday. India-Germany bilateral economic cooperation has been robust. Germany is India’s largest trading partner in Europe and the sixth largest trading partner in the world. India was ranked 24th in Germany’s global trade.

India’s current priorities in most areas match with German expertise, such as renewable energy, skills development, Smart City, water & waste management, cleaning of rivers, railways, etc.

There are more than 15,000 Indian students in Germany and around 800 German students are doing their internship or studying in India (2017).
