As an initiative of “National Scale”  project endorsed by Department of Archaeology,  Mobitel developed an iBeacon mobile application  targeting the audience who has an interest on exploring the cultural heritage and archaeology of Sri Lanka. The said mobile application would be expected to act as an “Electronic Portal” promoting national heritage and archaeological value of Sri Lanka. 
The audience shall include general public of Sri Lanka and also tourists (i.e.:- travelers, sightseers, etc). The said mobile app will be freely downloadable from either Google Play or App Store, and usage will also be free for its users. 
An iBeacon device is attached to monuments and antiques and the user has to turn on the Mobile application while observing antiques. Information about each monument and antique will be displayed on the application when the user is closer to the object.
