14.05.2015; Xi'an, China: INDIAN PM NARENDRA MODI
visits the Daxingshan Temple, Xi'an, Shaanxi Province on the first day of his 3-day visit to China.
Mr Modi met Chinese President Xi Jinping in Xian, capital of Mr Xi's home province of Shaanxi and will later travel to Beijing and Shanghai.
Mr Modi's decision to start his trip in the ancient central city of Xian - some 1,000km (600 miles) from Beijing - is being seen as symbolic of the move to improve relations between India and China.
Mr Xi, who like most Chinese leaders seldom hosts foreign dignitaries outside the capital, issued the invitation while visiting Mr Modi's home town in Gujarat state last year.
The leaders of the world's two most populous nations are expected to sign deals worth billions of dollars.
Relations are still strained over a long-running border dispute.
