360 Degree Cameras Provide Virtual Walkthroughs of Indian Heritage Sites and Museums

Four years on, a partnership between Google and the Archaeological Survey of India has seen 374 Indian museums and heritage sites transformed into virtual walkthroughs with stunning interior and exterior views. The imagery was captured by Google's Street View Trekker, a wearable backpack with a 15-lens camera system. The camera captures a 360-degree view every 2.5 seconds.  The panoramic imagery is available for Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Victoria Memorial Kolkata, Raigad Ford, Bom Jesus church Goa, Mahabalipuram Rock temple, Nagarjunakonda,  Vittala temple Hampi and many more.
