India’s cultural diversity will be exhibited on the streets of Ahmedabad on Wednesday as artists from 28 states will put up an impressive show on an eight-km-long route, along which Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe will hold a roadshow.

Abe will arrive on a two-day India visit during which he and Modi will hold the 12th India-Japan annual summit. The two leaders will participate in a road show that would start from the Ahmedabad airport and culminate at the Sabarmati Ashram.

“Artists of 28 states to display Diversity of Indian culture in a 8KM long Cultural Road Show as hon’ble PM welcomes Japan’s PM,” tweeted Union Minister of State for Culture, Mahesh Sharma.

Prime Minister Abe and Prime Minister Modi would fly into Ahmedabad on Wednesday afternoon and drive down straight to Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram in the evening.

They would visit the iconic 16th century mosque in the old city, Sidi Saiyad Mosque, known for its window filigree work synonymous with Ahmedabad.
