It's an enduring symbol of love . The Taj Mahal in India is visited by millions each year . But for those who can't see it first-hand, how about a virtual tour ? Google is working with the Indian government to bring the landmark to Street View, using a special camera . The company's previous attempts to map India's streets were blocked due to security concerns . But now it seems the 360-year-old mausoleum is catching up with the 21st Centure .
