Agra’s tourist attraction Taj Mahal has emerged as one of the most popular in Asia for global ‘virtual travellers’ using Google’s Street View service to explore world heritage sites.
“Taj Mahal has emerged as one of the most popular Asian places for global virtual travellers. The fascination with this grand, symmetrical white marble mausoleum also holds within Asia, with the Taj Mahal ranking as one of the most globally viewed destinations by people in Singapore, Australia, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia and of course, India,” a Google blog post said last week.

“Last year, global virtual tourists had favoured Japan for its trails weaving up Mount Fuji, its colourful canal at Dotonbori and its secluded ruins at Hashima Island, as the most popular Google Street View destinations in Asia,” it said.

This year, the top 10 Street View destinations in Asia that get the most views from around the world are – Japan’s Hashima Island, Japan’s Mount Fuji, India’s Taj Mahal, Japan’s Biel Furano, Japan’s Dotonbori Canal, Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, Cambodia’s Bayon Temple, Japan’s Sendai area, Japan’s Yufuin, and Japan’s Tokyo Station Hotel.

Google Street View is a technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world.
