Beijing: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday attended a Yoga-Taichi event at the Temple of Heaven in central Beijing accompanied by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

"Wonderful to see Indian students doing Taichi and Chinese students doing Yoga," the prime minister tweeted.

Modi congratulated Li for the conceptualisation of the unique event.

"The holistic health care that world needs can be fulfilled by Yoga."

The Temple of Heaven is a complex of religious buildings situated in central Beijing. The complex was visited by the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest. It has been regarded as a Daoist temple, although Chinese heaven worship, especially by the reigning monarch of the day, predates Daoism.
