President Donald Trump was met by hundreds of thousands of cheering Indian citizens during his trip to the country Monday, giving a well-received speech at a cricket stadium in Ahmedabad and visiting the famous Taj Mahal.

Photos show Trump and first lady Melania Trump being met with excited Indian citizens as the motorcade made its way to Sardar Patel Stadium (Motera Stadium), the world’s biggest cricket stadium.

“Two great democracies at the world biggest cricket stadium,” a sign read as the motorcade approached the stadium, according to White House press pool.
