Our online virtual tour enables visitors to interactively explore the "UNESCO World Heritage Site", the Taj Mahal at Agra in India. Visitors may tour 22 different areas of the monument and gardens through 360° panoramas, maps, narrated mini-movies, music and text. A small 360° panorama above a clickable map allows a quick view of any area. Having spotted something of interest, visitors can then click to open a window with a much larger and higher quality 360° panorama, and then zoom in and pan around for a detailed inspection. For example: To view the inlaid semi-precious stones on the Dome itself. At any point, visitors can view narrated mini-movies about the people, architecture, politics and history of the site (also includes full Text for the hearing-impaired).
An easy-to-follow map also ensures that, unlike a real tourist, our virtual visitors can jump around the gardens and monument with a single click. There are even exclusive 360° panoramic views taken from the Roof and in the Crypt of the monument - these areas are completely Off-Limits to the public. All of our panoramas have descriptive narration, music, integrated text for the hearing-impaired, and MS Word files with pictures.
