India-Independence-day

Google announced today the availability of 76 historical sites in India that can be viewed from Google Maps or through the Google Cultural Institute site. These 360-degree photos will let you take a tour of the Kangra Fort without having to pack a single bag. Thanks to support from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), along with previous efforts, Google’s imagery of historic shots of India has surpassed 100 pictures, with locations like the Taj Mahal and Humayun’s Tomb already available to view.

In addition to historical places to visit, Google has added content from several new Indian arts and archival institutions to its cultural portal. This includes exhibits organized by Indian screenwriter and photographer Sooni Taraporevala at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi. History buffs can also have a virtual encounter with India’s first Independence Day in 1947 through eyes of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru by way of content from the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.
