"I have an old connection with Nepal, but as India's Prime Minister, this is my third visit to the country".

Later, Modi and Oli held one-on-one and delegation-level talks, during which the two sides agreed to resolve outstanding issues before September 19, which marks Nepal's Constitution Day, officials said.

Ramayana Circuit is an initiative undertaken by the Indian Ministry of Tourism to help promote religious tourism.

During the visit, Modi will also inaugurate the Rs. 6,000-crore Arun 3 project which was expected to generate 900 MW of power.

Modi also read out a small paragraph of "Ramcharitmanas" to describe the relations between Nepal and India. This will act as a foundation for strong people to people contact between the two nations, says PM Modi. He also said he had spoken to Modi about the exchange of demonetised Indian currency in Nepal.

"Janakpur and Ayodhya are being connected".

"I come to Nepal during a memorable period in the nation's journey". He said, "India stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Nepal. We have been there for each other in the most hard of times".

Before addressing the civic reception, organised by the local administration in Janakpur, Modi and his Nepal counterpart K.P. Sharma Oli flagged off the Janakpur-Ayodhya bus service that links Sita's birthplace to the Ramayan circuit.

Thousands of people have gathered on the Janaki temple premises to welcome Mr. Modi.

India had asked Nepal to investigate the explosion that caused minor damaged to the office.

"Cultural relations are at the core of India-Nepal friendship". On May 12, Modi will visit Muktinath temple at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass in Mustang district to pay obeisance and also announce a "surprise gift" for its development and reconstruction.

Although the government got people to line the route of his motorcade, there was no sign of the euphoria that had greeted Modi on his first visit in 2014.

Modi attended prayers at a Hindu temple, and later gave a speech.

He travels to Kathmandu in the afternoon where he will call on Nepalese President Bidya Devi Bhandari and Vice President Nanda Bahadur Pun.

Nepal's Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Oli flew to Janakpur to welcome Modi.

Earlier, Defence Minister Ishwar Pokhrel and Province 2 Chief Minister Lalbabu Raut received Prime Minister Modi at the airport upon his arrival. "We have been there for each other in the most hard of times", Modi said at a civic reception by the Janakpur Sub-Metropolitan City at Barhabigha ground here.
