Google has shared three most-visited places on Google Street View on its 15th birthday! And Taj Mahal has made it to the list!
Google Street View has always been that indispensable tool that lets you virtually reach unexpected places that may not be accessible to you! Well, recently Google’s Street View turned 15 years old! And on this occasion, Google has shared a heartfelt blog related to the Street View since its first images were generated back in 2007. What is surprising is that Google Street View has captured over 220 billion images and covered more than 10 million miles across 100 countries and territories.
To celebrate the 15th birthday of the Street View, Google has also shared the “three places the world’s been loving lately” and guess what? India’s Taj Mahal is on the third spot in the most popular places to explore on Street View. Not so surprising though, as it is the finest example of Mughal architecture, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1983. It has always been one of the biggest global attractions for tourists across the world. Well, the first spot has been grabbed by the world’s tallest building in the United Arab Emirates, the Burj Khalifa, especially its 154th floor, and the iconic Eiffel Tower in France, which became the second most popular place to visit on Google Street View.
Google has shared 15 amazing Street View collections in the blog. Besides this, four new collections, top 10 most visited countries in the world, and Street View images have been part of Google’s blog. The most visited countries include Indonesia, the United States, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, France, and the UK.
