Now Google Street View brings 360 View of Taj Mahal

Don’t get upset if you didn’t get a chance to go to Agra to see one of the seven wonders of the world- Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal’s magic still working. Google now teaming up with Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to bring street View Trekker to 100 Indian heritage and cultural wonders, coming up with 360-degree panoramic imagery that Internet users can immerse themselves in.

Taj mahal and other 99 heritage sites in India is brought to Street View. That includes Ajanta and Ellora caves.

Once the massive project is completed, the imagery of these Indian heritage sites will be available on Google Maps and on Google Cultural Institute’s World Wonders site.

Way before in 2011 it was banned from collecting images in the southern Indian city Bangalore. Due to privacy issues. Now they got the permission so Google’s Street View started their next venture here.

Google Street View has added some really cool new imagery into Google Maps recently — the beautiful Galapalagos Islands is one of them, as well as the eerie Japanese island that inspired the villain’s hideout in James Bond movie Skyfall and Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley on the set of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in the UK.

So sit at home, and with almost zero expense travel around the world (virtually though) within your four walls and just a finger tip.
