Amazon CEO and world's richest man Jeff Bezos, along with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, visited the Taj Mahal on Tuesday. Pictures that surfaced online show them posing together with the Taj Mahal in the backdrop. On Monday, he had unveiled a fleet of fully electric delivery rickshaws and shared a video that showed him driving an e-rickshaw with Amazon's delivery partners.
Bezos stood with Sanchez in front of the reflecting pool which leads to the 338-year-old mausoleum Tuesday. Amazon founder last week pledged a $1billion investment program for India at a conference in New Delhi. Bezos met some Bollywood stars and donned an Indian kurta to lay flowers for Gandhi last week. But his visit has not been without controversy and demonstrators have held furious protests against Amazon.
After arriving Tuesday, Bezos paid tribute to India's independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, dressing in an Indian kurta to lay flowers at a memorial in Delhi.
