Re: Where Local Guides shared the most photos in 2018

Hello @Christina-NYC,

Thank you for your great yearly summary. I wish my city will be in the list next year. Local guides are very dedicated all over the world, which makes the map helpful and more informative than ever. I am glad that, I am also a Local Guide, though my contributions are minor. I believe that, a small contribution in Google Map can impact in a large scale.

Thanks to all local guides for their willing mind.

@Christina-NYC,

 

Thanks for sharing such beautiful photos. I believe every photo has a story to tell. 

 

I would like to share a photo of "The Taj Mahal" in Agra, a small city but famous place all over the world. The monument is a symbol of love created by Shah Jahan for his beautiful wife Mumtaz Mahal. I spent about 2 hours and clicked few memorable photos which I would like to share with you all.
