The rainy weather did not prevent thousands of Indonesians from going out to welcome Saudi King Salman with traditional chants. This is the second stop on King Salman’s Asian tour, which started in Malaysia.

The Indonesian people repeated a special chant to welcome the King; they consider that this visit represents the new cohesion as one nation. Thousands of photos of the visit were taken by photographers, but there is one photo that went viral and was heavily circulated on Twitter. This photo shows King Salman walking under umbrellas covering him from the heavy rain wave that hit Indonesia on Wednesday.

It is worth mentioning that due to the rainy weather, the program of King Salman’s visit was amended and the ceremonial Show of Indonesian Guard of Honor that is usually performed during formal visits was canceled.
