Impressed by these famous landmarks? Seeing them from afar might change your mind
The Taj Mahal, exotic and glorious…is next door to some not-so-beautiful landscape.

As impressive as these famous landmarks look, seeing these pictures of them taken from far away might leave you feeling a little underwhelmed.

This applies even when you have not visited the iconic spots in person, as everyone should know what they look like -- upclose, that is.

Many look smaller on their large landscapes, while some are surrounded or hidden by urban clutter such as skyscrapers.

Check out the gallery to see what Mount Rushmore, the Niagara Falls and more look like from a distance.
