New Delhi, Jul 11 (UNI) To commemorate bilateral relations with China, the government today introduced a set of two postage stamps depicting two famous Buddhist temples--the Mahabodhi Temple of India and the White Horse Temple of China.

The stamps were released here by Communications and IT Minister Thiru A Raja at a function.

The two stamps have been priced at Rs 15 each.

The Chinese version of these stamps were released in Beijing last month during the visit of External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee.

The common design of the stamps has been jointly done by Postal Departments of India and China.

Recalling centuries of cultural exchange between the two countries, Mr Raja described Buddhism as the mainstay of the relationship.

He said the joint stamp is a reminder of the friendly relations between the two countries and regional cooperation will help improve the quality of service in the region.
