Monuments at Mahabalipuram will have QR codes giving visitors a guided tour.
What’s it about? If you’re interested to know more about the monuments and the history of Mahabalipuram, the Archeology department has decided to have QR code tablets at the monuments. Visitors can scan the code and get additional details.
- Once someone scans the code, they’ll have access to an audio-guided tour as they visit each monument and points of interest.
- Even with local guides, there continued to be a language barrier for visitors. They couldn’t get all the information about the place and monuments.
Importance of Mahabalipuram: Every year, tourists visit Mahabalipuram to see UNESCO-certified sites like the shore temple, Arjuna’s Penance, and Krishna’s Butter Ball. The move to have QR codes comes just in time for attendees of the G20 summit visiting next week.
