Justin Trudeau is in Amritsar and guess what, it’s his 4th day in India. And he along with his family visited the famous Sikh shrine – the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu along with Minister of State Hardeep Singh Puri received the family.
The Trudueaus carried on the same flow as that of Mumbai and Ahmedabad, and showed up in traditional and flamboyant dresses to give respect at Harmandir Sahib.
The family were attended by Canada's Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan and other Canadian officials.
Upon completing their prayers at the temple, the family sat for the riwayati (traditional) langar – a community meal taken together. They also did kar seva at the community kitchen of Golden Temple. Surprisingly so, the PM’s wife attempted her first roti-making, directed by Vikas Khanna – a celebrity chef from Amritsar.
The chef uploaded a cheering image on Instagram which showed Justin and his wife getting their first hands-on with rotis.
"Teaching the beloved Trudeau family to roll Breads at The Holy Golden Temple. The same place where I learnt to cook," Vikas wrote.
The Prime Minister wrote a comment in Golden Temple book of visitors. "What an honour to be so well received at such a beautiful, meaningful place. We are filled with grace and humility,"
Justin Trudeau was offered a 24-carat gold-plated portrait of the shrine with ‘Siri Sahib’ (6-inch sword), a ‘siropa’ (robe of honor) along with a shawl given by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
