Justin Trudeau, 46, and his family visited the Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar.

Trudeau is expected to meet IIT students and lead a discussion at the Indian Institute of Management- Ahmedabad on "Education and Investment Opportunities" with students.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday toured the Taj Mahal with his wife and children as he began a week-long visit to promote trade and investment with India.

Trudeau, his wife Sophie Gregoire and their three children posed for a family portrait before marvelling at the legendary marble monument frequently visited by foreign leaders during roadshows to India.

It was Trudeau's first visit to India since taking office in 2015 and is joined by Sikh members of his cabinet for the visit.

 He will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and efforts to expand trade will dominate an agenda also covering energy, education and infrastructure.

The delegation will walk a diplomatic tightrope in Punjab where Trudeau will visit the Golden Temple -- the holiest site in Sikhism.

The Canadian premier will meet Indian political leaders, civil society figures and corporate executives between ceremonial visits to religious sites and national memorials.

After visiting Amritsar in Punjab on Wednesday, Trudeau will meet Modi and Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi following a welcome at the presidential palace and a wreath-laying at Mahatma Gandhi's memorial.

Modi visited Canada in 2015 and addressed a crowd of 10,000 from the Indian diaspora in Toronto.
