These days though GPS is a very common navigation system, still using GPS for everybody is not possible due to the lack of technological awareness. So people follow the traditional method of asking location to the local people around. After taking external guidance, even if one reaches the destination place, one is not able to understand the significance of that place. In this paper, we have discussed an implementation of a Mobile Augmented Reality based application called “ARCampusGo". With this application, one has to just scan the structure/monument to view the details about it. Along with it, this application also provides the names of nearby structure/monuments. One can select any of them and then the route to the selected monument/structure from the current location is rendered. This application renders rich, easy and interactive visual experience to the user. The performance and usability of “ARCampusGo" are evaluated during different daytime and nighttime with the different number of users. The user experience and feedback are considered for performance measurement and enhancement.
