NEW DELHI, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in India's western state of Gujarat on Monday for a two-day state visit to the country.

Accompanied by U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, the U.S. president arrived in the state's Ahmedabad city to a grand welcome.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed them at the Ahmedabad airport. Gujarat is also Modi's home state.

The U.S. president and the first lady will spend nearly four hours in the city before flying to northern city of Agra (in Uttar Pradesh state) to have a sun-set glimpse of the world heritage site the "Taj Mahal."

Finally, the Trumps' entourage will arrive in Delhi late on Monday evening.

This will be Trump's fifth meeting with Indian Prime Minister Modi in the past eight months, said India's Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla.
