MANAMA, Bahrain: Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Bahrain on Sunday, after receiving the Order of Zayed, the top civilian honour from the UAE in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Here too, the PM received a similar honour, the King Hamad Order of Renaissance, amid cheers from the Indian community and the locals.
The Prime Minister spent some time at Bahrain’s Shreenathji Temple, which is among the oldest temples in the Gulf region and a symbol of the age-old ties between Bahrain and India. He launched a $4.2million development project for the 200-year-old Sri Krishna temple.
Addressing the Indian community at the packed Bahrain National Stadium in Manama, Modi said his visit was as the head of the government, as the Prime Minister of the country, but its main purpose was to meet the Indians diaspora and communicate with them and thousands not friends in Bahrain.
