One of the new seven wonders of the world, India’s much-admired heritage site globally Taj Mahal, is now available in the format of virtual tour, simply by using Street View on Google Maps.  For those who can’t make it to India, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and Google has provided web users the ability to explore monuments like Taj Mahal, Humayun’s Tomb, Red Fort and Agra Fort on Google Maps  in 360-degree view in their internet browser

Banned in the past due to privacy concerns, Google has now come up with 360-degree panoramic imagery of 30 monuments. On premièring this service, union minister of culture Chandresh Kumari Katoch said “Today, this partnership with Google makes it possible for billions of people across the world to see and explore our magnificent heritage, to take a walk at the Rock Cut Jain Temple, to marvel at the Nagarjuna Konda Buddhist Stupas and to relive history in Fatehpur Sikri. With the release of these new panoramic images, we aim to create a dynamic, immersive online experience by which people within India and around the world can understand and engage more of India’s diverse cultural heritage”.

Google had signed an MOU with the Ministry of Tourism, India to map 30 monuments using its ‘Street View Trekker’ technology for the first time in India. As the special Google cars cannot enter into the Taj Mahal, it is instead being mapped by a backpack Trekker 75 Mega Pixel camera specially designed by Google.

Many other websites already provide virtual tours on net, like this one

Here’s a video bringing you through Google Maps Street View to the Taj Mahal.
