Officials said the visiting dignitary returned for lunch at the hotel with the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, before leaving for New Delhi.

The road from Kheria airport to the Taj Mahal was sealed and massive security arrangements made. Two golf carts and 15 battery buses were arranged for the visiting delegation.

Yogi Adityanath arrived in the city on Monday evening to review arrangements for the visiting dignitary.

The ivory white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna was closed for common visitors for two hours till the Israeli Prime Minister left.

No car or person was allowed to be in a periphery of 500 metres around the Taj since morning.
