For example let us take a query like [Taj Mahal]. Up till now [Taj Mahal] was meant to be just two words for the Google search engine. But with Knowledge Graph you are presented with an intelligent form of information about the search term, here [Taj Mahal], in a graphical manner which understands real-world entities and its relation with other objects.

So with Knowledge Graph in place, searching [Taj Mahal] would return information such as its brief description, location, year of opening, height, architectural style, architect, etc. It also returns related information regarding other monuments as well under the section – “People also search for”. You get all this information about [Taj Mahal] easily and instantly.
