Among all the architectural marvels around the world, Hyderabad’s Charminar has its own historical significance. Built in 1591 CE by Qutb Shah, commemorating the beginning of second Islamic millennium year as well as formation of the grand Hyderabad city, the landmark has attracted a large flock of architects as well as travellers around the globe. And now to ease efforts for tourists, Google Maps has taken a leap forward by listing the engineering marvel in its Street View imagery.
The Google Maps team tweeted recently about the street view inception of the elegant Charminar saying that Street View made a ‘very brief stop off’ to get the imagery. Last week Google had announced that it had completed capturing Street View of Mount Fuji and few of the captured snaps of the world’s famous mountain will be released soon. Google Maps has been globe trotting in its quest to capture the entire planet in its camera which includes landmarks like the Burj Khalifa of Dubai, the Eiffel Tower of Paris and many other monuments. The images of Charminar has really shown technological footing of Google in imaging technology.
