The newlywed King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk and Queen Jetsun Pema Wangchuk of Bhutan are in India on a nine-day state visit-cum-honeymoon.
The royal couple was received by Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Milind Deora, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai and other senior officials at the Indira Gandhi International Terminal Airport in Delhi Sunday.
This is the royal couple's first visit abroad after their wedding Oct. 13 and the King's fourth visit to India since his coronation in November 2008.
King Jigme, who is better known as K5 (the fifth king), was given a ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Later he laid a wreath at Rajghat, the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi.
Monday, the King of Bhutan discussed international and bilateral issues with Indian leaders, including President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Thursday, the royal couple left for Jaipur in Rajasthan. They will be visiting Jodhpur and Udaipur also.
"Decision to visit India just a week after our wedding came naturally. India has a special place in our hearts," said the King.
King Jigme earlier paid a state visit to India in December 2009. In October 2010, he visited Kolkata as the chief guest of the convocation ceremony at the Kolkata University and visited New Delhi as the guest of honor at the golden jubilee celebrations of National Defense College, his alma mater.
