function initialize() 
    var markers = [];  
    var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(18.9800, 73.1000);       
    var mapOptions = 
            zoom: 15,     
            center: myLatlng,   
            mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP 
     var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), mapOptions);    
     //var transitLayer = new google.maps.KmlLayer('http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ggeoxml/cta.kml');

    var geoXml = new geoXML3.parser({map: map, singleInfoWindow: true});
     //var geoXml1 = new geoXML3.parser({map: map, singleInfoWindow: true});
        google.maps.event.addListener(geoXml, 'click', function(kmlEvent) 

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize); 

<div id="map-canvas" style="float: left; width: 70%; height: 100%;"></div>
