We reviewed the summer search activity on in several countries between the end of May and the beginning of September. Within each country, a look at some of the top-rising searches and the often-searched landmarks on Google Maps gives us a sense of how people around the world spent their summers.

As you can see from the infographic for Indians, the most popular search landmark was Yamuna Expressway that runs from Greater Noida to Agra. Second on the list, is the scenic backwaters of Kerala. Taj Mahal came in to fourth spot.

What India searched for this summer.

Overall, India seems to be searching for a lot of tourist attractions followed by railway and metro stations and then religious spots.
