The Indian leader arrived at Buckingham Palace Friday in a Jaguar — the iconic British car brand owned by India's Tata Motors.

Later, Modi will rally thousands of supporters at Wembley Stadium, home to rock concerts and England's national soccer team.

British Prime Minister David Cameron says Modi's visit cements a "modern, dynamic partnership" between the world's fifth-largest economy — Britain — and India, which will soon rank third.

The two countries have announced 9 billion pounds ($14 billion) in business deals during the trip.

Modi has also been met by protests from Sikhs, Muslims, human rights groups and others concerned at growing religious intolerance and violence in India.
