What's in it

India is a country with over 5000 years of history, and with places and buildings that are over thousands of years old. What’s the point in just going around the place, staring at sculptures and buildings without knowing the background?

The highly-evolved forms of art and architecture, the social structure, the culture and traditions, are very tightly interwoven in the Indian fabric of life, and all of this we have beautifully woven as stories in our audio guided tours.

At this time, we are focused on providing audio guided tours for 2 south Indian states; Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

Pinakin is an Audio guide for every Indian and every foreign tourist visiting South India. We are sure, once you use our app, your ‘photographic memories’ will become ‘information memories’ that stays with you for a lifetime, with stories to tell your friends and family on what you know about Incredible India!

What’s in it?

• Audio content designed to keep you engaged for 1.5 hours to 2 hours for each site.
• There are interesting stories, some amazing facts, interesting trivia
• Information about the place, the history, ticket prices, parking details, dress code etc


The first in India to provide audio guide with local Indian languages.

Language is a very key part in India and knowing about your local place in your language is the best way to look at things.


Our current version is designed to work OFFLINE mode. Once downloaded, you don’t have to worry about network and connectivity.
