Kyoto: "I am Modi and you are Mori!" This is how Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the head monk of a Buddhist temple he visited here Sunday.

Modi, who looked dapper in a white kurta pyjama and bandhgala, spent some time with the 83-year-old head priest Yasu Nagamori of Kinkaku-ji temple, a spokesman for the external affairs ministry tweeted.

Prior to visiting the 1397-built Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion) temple, Modi also went to the 57 meters tall Toji temple here.

Modi is on a five-day visit to Japan.
