India is not only rich in culture, but also has some of the world’s most amazing natural and human-built historical archaeological sites. Google India in partnership with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has added 76 of the sites to Street View and the Google Cultural Institute for you to explore.

On Street View and the Cultural Institute, you can see panoramic images and learn about the history of sites such as the Ellora Caves, Kangra Fort and Lodi Garden Monuments.

This addition of the sites brings the number of ASI locations featured online to over 100, joining the heritage sites such as the Taj Mahal and Humayun’s Tomb that launched in February.

Google has also added a number of Indian arts and archival institutions onto the Cultural Institute, where you can explore new exhibits curated by Indian screenwriter and photographer Sooni Taraporevala at the National Gallery of Modern Art in DelhiNehru Memorial Museum and Library.  

“We hope that by putting these sights online and making them accessible for anyone with an Internet connection, these exhibits will inspire more people to visit, and in doing so, sustain India’s glorious heritage,” Google India says.
