Kanatal Trip

Kanatal, a city in the state of Uttarakhand is nearly 300 km from Delhi. I made the trip there in mid December 2015 in hopes of experiencing snow. But alas all I got was this spectacular panoramas instead. I am not complaining since I did see snow, albeit it was possibly in far distance, stretching on Horizon.

In this first panorama you can see the sun about to rise. It was freezing at this time and I was waiting impatiently for little sunshine.

Lodi Garden, a city park situated in New Delhi, India is a prime destination for many joggers, developed and “developing” families for a retreat.

From Wiki:

Lotus Temple

Lotus Temple, also called Bahá’í House of Worship is a construction which is famous for its architectural design which is in the shape of a Lotus flower. It’s located near Nehru Place, in South Delhi, which is widely considered as major information technology hub of South Asia.

I have visited Lotus Temple many times before, but this I was able to capture this 360 degree sphere, under cloudy sky. Caution: A few legs would be missing in the panorama. As it turns out I am still a newbie when taking a Google Sphere is considered.

Taj Mahal

Yesterday I went to Agra to see Taj Mahal with 4 of my friends. I did go before but then I was a just small kid and didn’t quite recollect how it looked in person. Here are 3 Google Spheres to have an idea how it felt being there.
