The almost life like holograms, will bring to life the architecture and design of these iconic monuments and temples, replicating the physical experience.
"With the advent of 5G, immersive virtual tourism is expected to help reinvent the travel and tourism industry where the masses would be able to see remote places and monuments from the comfort of their homes," the companies said.
