PHOTOS: Modi Wore Traditional Dress, Played An Instrument, Shot An Arrow During Colourful Mongolia Visit


Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the Mini Naadam Festival in Mongolia's Ulan Bator during his three-nation tour. Dressed in traditional Mongol costume, Modi was seen in these PTI photos playing the traditional Mongolian music instrument Yochin, picking up a bow and arrow and interacting with the locals as his counterpart Chimed Saikhanbileg looked on.

The traditional festival, locally called 'Eriin Gurvan Naadam', celebrates the 'three games of men' — wrestling, horse racing and archery.
