Donald Trump to visit Taj Mahal: World leaders who visited the iconic monument of love

Updated : 2020-02-20 11:05:11

US President Donald Trump, who will arrive in India on February 24 with his wife Melania Trump for a two-day visit, is likely to visit Taj Mahal. World leaders from various countries who visited India in the past have made sure to visit the historic monument and have fallen in love with the epitome of love. However, former US President Barack Obama gave a miss to the monument in 2015 during his India visit as he had to cut short his trip following the death of King Abdullah. The White House later stated that Obama felt disappointed as he couldn't visit Taj Mahal. Even as preparations are underway in UP's Agra for Trump's visit, here's a look at some of the pictures of world leaders who got a chance to visit the Taj (Via Getty Images):
