Light House Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice place from where we can have an aerial view of the beach and the road. There are many local shops nearby that sells cheap food. Good place for photography. The last time I was there , the entry fee was RS 10 for children, 20 for adults and 50 for foreigners. It is 9 stories high and the view is quite great at the top.

  • Great experience in top of light house. But little crowd. Lift is available to top.. no one allowed in steps. But entrance ticket little high I feel. it's 20rs for adults children 10rs.. overall nice experience for me. 🙏🙏

  • Value for money place! Nice views... awesome place to visit on a pleasant weather day! Has lift access to top.... not accessible for handicapped

The lighthouse was opened in January 1977. It also houses the meteorological department. On 16 November 2013, it was reopened to visitors. It is one of the few lighthouses in the world with an elevator. It is also the only lighthouse in India within the city limits. It is also a green lighthouse, with a solar panel for power. Visitors will be permitted to have an aerial view of the cit ..     It will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on all days, except Mondays

  • Very Beautiful place for photographers. Best place to spend time for early morning exercise. Personally the place is very emotional for me i have spent more good memories with by friends. Early morning sunrises is best time to motivate ourselves.
