Mr. Modi will personally guide the visiting leader through the ancient monuments. Later, he will host dinner for the Chinese President near the Shore Temple. The leaders would wind up the first day of the visit at Mamallapuram with the Kalakshetra group from Chennai performing classical dances in the backdrop of the temple on the beachfront.
