Britain's Prince Charles, who is on a two-day trip to India, visited Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi on Wednesday.

Prince Charles was bestowed a 'Siropa', a robe of honour, and was given a warm welcome by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC). Moreover, he paid obeisance at the Gurudwara and interacted with the Sikhs.

Besides, he was seen flipping roties during his visit.

His visit comes a day after the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev was celebrated with much joy and fervour throughout the country and different parts of the world.

This is Prince Charles' 10th official visit to India. His engagements in the national capital include a bilateral meeting with the President Ram Nath Kovind.

Earlier, he visited the India Meteorological Department (IMD) at Mausam Bhawan in the national capital on Wednesday.

Charles interacted with the IMD officials during his stay. He was seen leaving the Mausam Bhawan in a battery-operated rickshaw.

He will also present a Commonwealth 'Points of Light' award to an Indian winner for her exemplary contribution to the field of social development that involves upliftment of disabled children, family counselling and therapy sessions, a British High Commission statement said.

Prince Charles will then attend a military service to commemorate the sacrifices of soldiers from India, the UK and across the Commonwealth in World War One and World War Two.

He will also attend a discussion with influential Indian business leaders to seek their advice and input on sustainable markets.

"I am delighted to welcome His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to India once again on his 10th official visit. His many visits to India and his enduring interest in promoting our common interests is another example of the living bridge between the United Kingdom and India," British High Commissioner to India Dominic Asquith said.

Prince Charles will witness how India makes use of innovation to respond to natural disasters and how its clean technology is helping deal with the challenges of climate change, Asquith said.

"He will celebrate our strong cultural links and experience the warm hospitality that diverse religious communities in India have to offer. The visit will honour the past, celebrate the present and look forward to a joint future driven by an innovative and responsible focus on shared challenges," the British envoy said.
