Watch: New Zealand PM visits Hindu temple, eats puri chhole

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern visited a temple on August 6.

PM Ardern visited Radha Krishna Mandir in Auckland.

Indian envoy Muktesh Pardeshi was also present at the event.

As she entered, Ardern removed her footwear as is customary.

She then entered the main sanctum to the sound of conch shells.

Mantras were being read out as she walked towards the idols.

A priest put a 'teeka' on her forehead and gave her a saffron scarf.

She stood with folded hands as the priest finished the prayers.

PM Ardern later ate Indian dishes like 'puri' and 'chhole'.

PM Ardern is currently riding high on her successful Covid response.

New Zealand recently completed 100 days with zero domestic transmission of Covid.

The nation is slated to go to polls in September.
