Installing tkinter library in python 2.7

Hi ,

When I am trying to install python library tkinter using command below
pip install tkinter

Following messages appears:
Downloading/unpacking tkinter
Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement tkinter
Cleaning up…
No distributions at all found for tkinter
Storing debug log for failure in /home/ubuntu/.pip/pip.log
sakshig:~/workspace $ pip install tkinter

Can anybody help me on this ?

Thanks
