Now, an iOS app that helps you find God


Have you ever driven all the way to a temple’s doors and found it is closed for the afternoon, or wondered on a birthday which is the nearest temple to your house? Well, now there’s an app to help you figure it out. is an iOS app dedicated to helping you find God somewhere near you.

The website and the connected iOS app have a directory of over 2000 Hindu temples outside India.  For each of these temples the site also has their address, phone number, and opening hours and other details.

By converting it into a Mobile App, devotees can now have the complete worldwide database right in their pockets. By default the app locates the temples closest to your current location but you can also go on a worldwide virtual journey looking at Hindu temples all over the world as pins on a Google map.

You can also register through the app and upload photos / comments to the temple listings, or upload religious events happening in temples so more people can know about them. Temple managers can claim the ownership of the temple listing and update it with whatever details they choose.

Founder Hari Iyer said the app is a result of months of dedicated effort from a worldwide team trying to make sure the contact details and information for each of the temples is correct. He also spoke about plans to cover temples all over the world, including the thousands of Hindu Temples in India.

The iOS app is a priced at 2.49 A$ /1.99US$, which will help fund further development of the site and mapping of all the large temples in India. Plans also include an Android App, which is in the making and a massive update to the database with over 2000 Hindu temples in Malaysia to be added soon.
