German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who is in India on a two-day official visit, explored the streets of the national capital during her time off.

She visited the Sis Ganj Gurudwara in Delhi and after that, she visited the busting Chandni Chowk market where she shopped for traditional Indian wear. Digital payment app Paytm was used to pay in Chandni Chowk, the German ambassador to India said.

“Packed and productive - a super exciting Day 1 of Minister @ABaerbock draws to a close. Great talks with @DrSJaishankar, an enriching visit to Sis Ganj Gurudwara followed by shopping with Shashi Bansal in Chandni Chowk and using Paytm to pay,” ambassador Dr Philipp Ackermann tweeted.

Vijay Shekhar Sharma, founder and CEO of Paytm, reacted to the envoy’s tweet, saying it was an experience of India's “world class digital payment infrastructure”.
