Google celebrated its 15 years on Tuesday, 24 May, since it kicked off its hugely controversial effort to photograph streets in a minute detail around the world.

Google celebrated its 15 years on Tuesday, 24 May, since it kicked off its hugely controversial effort to photograph streets in a minute detail around the world.

The firm recently published lists of the most famous destinations for users, with Burj Khalifa in Dubai grabbing the top position, followed by the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Taj Mahal in India.


The Burj Khalifa, also named as Burj Dubai, is a skyscraper in Dubai, UAE. With a total height of around 829.8 m and a roof height of 828 m, the Burj Khalifa has been the tallest structure and building in the world since 2009. The building was opened officially in 2010 as part of a new development called Downtown Dubai.

The most searched city was Jakarta beating Tokyo, Mexico City, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires.

The US tech giant is also observing the anniversary by releasing many new features, including an enhanced version of the “time travel” tool that enables users to see earlier photos taken by Google’s cameras.

Google states Indonesia was the most famous country for Street views, ahead of the United States, Mexico, Japan and Brazil.

The capital of Indonesia, Jakarta, was the most searched city, beating Mexico City, Tokyo, Buenos Aires and Sao Paolo.

The firm told about it in a blog post that it had gathered 220 billion images and has travelled more than 10 million miles since the first images were released of various cities, including San Francisco, Miami and New York.


It has since provided armchair travellers with scenic views everywhere, from the peak of Mount Everest to the depths of the Great Barrier Reef.

The scenic images of Google Street View have entered into daily life for millions – but during its early years, it lured countless court cases and objections from privacy campaigners.
