The picturesque historical seaside town of Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu will be the cynosure of all eyes as Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping at the UNESCO world heritage site for the second bilateral informal summit on October 11-12.

This is not the first time that Modi is hosting a foreign leader outside the national capital, which earlier used to be the norm. Modi has always maintained that the other states should get their due in showcasing to the world their beauty and culture. He has in the true sense opened the doors of 'Incredible India' to the world.

In the last five years, besides the transformational shift in diplomacy that he has brought about, visiting dignitaries have been given a first-hand experience of the diverse Indian hospitality in different parts of the country, that has helped promote Indian culture, heritage and diversity at the world stage.

From cutting-edge technology to ancient Indian heritage, from spirituality to architecture, India's guests have witnessed the vibrant culture of India. In the process, the foreign dignitaries have visited various Indian states across the country while giving the states an opportunity to highlight their traditions to the world.

During the last visit of Xi, he was also welcomed in Ahmedabad, where they visited the Sabarmati riverfront.
