In the morning hours on 4 October 2015 Istanbul welcomed a very rare visitor: the Indian Navy vessel INS Trikand.

Despite being a large navy, Indian warships very seldom visit Istanbul.

The Talwar (Project 1135.6) class frigate INS Trikand arrived in Istanbul for a 3 day port visit. The youngest ship of this class, INS Trikand will engage extensively with the Turkish Navy according to the twitter account of the Indian DOD spokesman. Apart from professional interactions, a number of sports and social engagements are also planned.
The interaction between two navies has increased in the last few years especially since Turkish Navy started to deploy warships for anti piracy operations in Indian Ocean.In April 2015 frigate TCG Gediz visited Mumbai.
