Google Street View has mapped the world's tallest building for the first time. Burj-Khalifa in Dubai is nominated as the highest skyscraper in the world. Google has captured any Arabic location for very first time and also a skyscraper. The company has stated in its official blog that this street view addition of 'the world’s tallest manmade structure' will make Google Maps more useful for users.

Google Street View team lead by program manager, Pascal Malite, has worked for 3 long days in full hot summer to collect the images. Street View Trekker and Trolley are being used to capture the stunning indoor and outdoor 360-degree panoramic views of the building. All these images are of high-resolution and gives Google Maps a new look.

Burj Khalifa is also named “vertical city". Its height is about 2,717 ft (828 meters). It has a total of 124 floors. It also has elevators with 22 mph speed that is fastest-moving in the world. While swimming pool present on the 76th floor is also the highest pool in the world. Now you can explore Burj-Khalifa through Google Maps and feel the height of the world without any fear.
