Google launches Street View for over 100 Indian monuments


Google has partnered up with the Indian Ministry of Culture and also the Archeological Survey of India in order to bring Street View to over 100 monuments in the country. Provided you have access to the internet, you’ll be able to enjoy 360 degree views of the structures.

“Google’s mission is to make information more accessible, and around the world Google is constantly looking for new ways to tell the stories of the world’s diverse cultures and make them available worldwide,” the company said in a statement.”Google hopes to help make more of India’s heritage accessible to people around the world, and to help preserve India’s unique history for generations to come.”

The Taj Mahal, Ajanta and the Ellora caves are just some of the structures you’ll be able to enjoy from your computer seat in Google’s latest addition to Google Maps. The company has been very busy of late adding more and more to Street View, including the coral reefs and the Grand Canyon.

“We believe that the new panoramic imagery of 100 Indian monuments will not only allow people to interact with our country’s culture in new ways, but also digitally preserve India’s heritage for future generations,” Pravin Srivastava, director general of the archeological survey, said in a statement.
