Both these places - the heritage hotel and the once non-descript Nariman House - were the targets of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack by 10 Pakistani gunmen who sneaked in from the Arabian Sea. "But he will always remain in our heart as baby Moshe", Rabbi Israel Kozlovsky, the head of the Chabad Trust in India, told reporters Monday.

However, his young parents Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and Rivka lost their lives along with seven others in the attack, after which little Moshe and Samuel were taken to Israel.

His grandparents and two uncles, who accompanied him from Israel, were with him during his Nariman House visit.

The Living Memorial project, as the memorial is called, will be housed on the top two floors and terrace of the Nariman House and will be dedicated to the victims of 26/11 attack.

Israel's Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon says Netanyahu, while interacting with leaders of the business community, suggested that they contemplate setting up R&D centres in Israel as many global players have already done.

"Following the talks I had with my friend Prime Minister @NarendraModi, the Indian government has informed us that it is putting the Spike deal back on track". I look forward to many more alliances between Maharashtra and Israel, says Fadnavis. He further adds, "Partnership between India and Israel is doing wonders".

"This is the place where he got his last hug from his father and mother", he said.

Mr. Netanyahu will later meet 25-30 members of the Jewish community at the Taj hotel.

Moshe, who landed here this morning from Israel, went to the iconic Taj hotel in Colaba, and then proceeded to Nariman House.
