After days of guessing game, it appears that former supermodel Carla Bruni is finally coming to India and will visit the monument of love -- Taj Mahal - on Saturday along with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Sarkozy will travel to the 17th century monument after witnessing the Republic Day parade in New Delhi and his 40-year-old Italian-born lady love is virtually all set to accompany him there, sources said on Friday.

They, however, did not indicate when Bruni would arrive in India and then travel onwards to Agra.

The guessing game over her coming to India has been going on for days, with both Indian and French governments keeping the suspense on.

The French side had initially indicated to India that Bruni might accompany the 52-year-old Sarkozy, raising questions over the protocol issue.

Sarkozy will be at the Taj Mahal briefly as he has to return to Delhi to attend President Pratibha Patil's 'At-Home' reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan at 3.45 PM.

Bruni had sought to end the speculation by telling a French daily that she would not be travelling along with Sarkozy.
