Burj Khalifa tops list of popular buildings on Google Street View

On Tuesday, Google published lists of the most popular destinations at street view for its users. Burj Khalifa took the top spot for buildings, followed by the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal.

The tech giant celebrated 15 years since it kicked off its mammoth and hugely controversial effort to photograph streets in minute detail across the globe. The US tech giant is marking the anniversary by releasing a slew of new features, including an improved version of the “time travel” tool that allows users to see previous photos taken by Google’s cameras.

Indonesia was the most popular country for Street View, ahead of the United States, Japan, Mexico and Brazil and the Indonesian capital Jakarta was the most searched city, beating Tokyo, Mexico City, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires.
