Google Clicking Pictures of Taj Mahal to Put it On Web?

The search giant, Google has started its mission in collaboration with Archaeological Survey of India to create several images of one of the world's wonder, the Taj Mahal along with several other historic monuments in order to create a virtual replica of the monuments. All images will be clicked by a special machine that will help Google to present a 360 degree view of the monument online.

Nishant Nair is in the Google team that is photographing around hundred monuments in India. Google has earlier planned a similar mission and successfully photographed Burj Khalifa, Eiffel Tower, Mt Everest and several other sites. In India, Google has hold several talks with the ISI and launched this project which is an attempt to put India's biggest historical sites on the web.
