The prince and the duchess were shown the nine weapons of Guru Gobind Singh. They greeted priests in the temple – or gurdwara – by performing a nemaste – bringing their hands together in prayer and bowing their heads.
Camilla gave coins and notes wrapped in material to one of the priests to be placed at the shrine as a mark of respect.
The India Express newspaper has described the duchess as being “daisy fresh” on the visit to the country, and having “sailed right through” her public engagements. “The duchess came as a pleasant surprise,” it said.
