How to embed a Map image from Google Map in a website?

Google Map has APIs. But the requirement is that the Map image should be static and uploaded to the website only. No request or dependency on Google's website should be needed so that the website can run without Internet.

Is it possible or allowed (like a screenshot of the Google Map)? If not, any suggestions on alternatives? Thanks.

From the permissions page https://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines.html , it seems screenshot is not allowed for the map. However, saving an images from Google Earch is allowed.

If you do want to make a screenshot on a map, you may consider using OpenStreetMap which has a more relaxed license for their data.
