Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a walk along the Mamallapuram coast ahead of his talks with Chinese President Xi Jingping.
'Refreshing walk and exercises in Mamallapuram, along the scenic coast,' Modi tweeted.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also undertook a 30-minute plogging initiative at the beach
He urged people to "ensure our public places are clean and tidy! Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy."
On Friday, a veshti-wearing Modi received Xi in the afternoon in the historic coastal city, which is famous for its temples and architecture dating back to the Pallava Dynasty
Modi chose to wear a veshti with a white half-sleeved shirt and angvastram. He carried out the rest of the day's engagements wearing the traditional attire
The close ties shared between the two leaders shone through, as Modi took Xi on a guided tour of UNESCO World Heritage sites like Arjuna's Penance, Krishna's Butter Ball, Pancha Rathas and the Shore Temple.
While touring the magnificent Panch Rathas complex, the two leaders sat down to catch their breaths and sipped on fresh coconut water, which was quite a departure from the 'Chai pe Charcha' that Modi is known for.
