However, amid speculation over Modi's timing which coincides with the Karnataka assembly election, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said that the visit was decided soon after K P Sharma Oli's election as prime minister. The agitation had also crippled the land-locked country's economy as supplies from India were blocked. All of the countries either share a coastline with the Bay of Bengal or are littoral states.

The foundation stone laying ceremony was originally planned for April when Oli visited New Delhi, but it was put off after Nepal said preparatory work had not been completed. He also met with the Prime Minister KP Oli, and the Maoist party chief Prachanda, so as to strengthen the bond between the two countries.

He arrived in Kathmandu today after a brief halt in Janakpur where he offered prayers at the famed 20th century Janaki temple and attended a civic reception. The circuit is a part of Modi's vision to build a 650-km connectivity project. He announced a package of Rs 100 crore to develop Janakpur, the temple city of Nepal.


Both sides also agreed to dispatch a joint technical team to resolve the recurrent inundation problem along the Nepal-India border. "We will address this within a set timeline". "Our ties are religious, based of deep faith and historical and complement to each others". "India stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Nepal", Modi had said. During his visits to these temples, PM was seen playing traditional drums and musical accompaniments with the temple priests. "Exchanged views on strengthening views on bilateral relations", Raveesh Kumar, official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, tweeted.

On 12 May, the 67-year-old Indian Prime Minister became the first leader in the world to pray at the Muktinath temple earlier today.

He also greeted and interacted with people waiting at the temple premises. Modi wrapped up his temple visits after offering special worship at Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu.
