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 .

How sad that the people who built the Taj Mahal the Muslims are second class citizens in India. Yeah Yeah Yeah I know the constitution says everyone is equal but we know that's not the case in India. Hindus are at the top, followed by sikhs then Buddhists then Christians then Muslims at the bottom. Very sad indeed.
