In its ongoing attempt to capture a good view of the entire planet, Google has mapped out stunning views of India’s Taj Mahal in its infamous Street View mode. Now you don’t have to look further than your desktop to get a view of the landmark which hosts over 3 million tourists and visitors per year.
The famous historical mausoleum is just one of the 30 landmarks in India with Google’s latest Street View project has painstakingly mapped out. Anyone curious about the incredible sights of India, but lacking the funds for a plane ticket, can now take the time to click through the ancient temples of Muvar Koil, the iconic Red Fort, and the historic Buddhist relic as Nagarjuna Konda.
In a blog post announcing the project’s launch, Street View project manager Gautuam Gandhi explained the idea behind bringing Indian heritage to those who might not otherwise have the chance to experience it. “With the new panoramic imagery live on Street View, people around the world can now visit these iconic monuments online,” explained Mr Gandhi.
