Light House, Chennai Reviews

  • The Madras Light House (Tamil: சென்னைக் கலங்கரை விளக்கம்) is a lighthouse facing the Bay of Bengal on the east coast of the Indian Subcontinent. It is a famous landmark on the Marina Beach in Chennai, India. It was built by the East Coast Constructions and Industries in 1976 replacing the old lighthouse in the northern direction. The lighthouse was opened in January 1977. It also houses the meteorological department and was restricted to visitors. 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.

  • This is a pretty picturesque spot to go to with your friends. It offers a panoramic view of Marina and parts of Chennai. The ticket is fairly priced and they have adequate staff yo guide you to the main balcony. Will surely suggest you to go during nice weather so you can get get better pictures!

  • Its lighthouse,an ancient invention of human being for navigating the ships in deep seas. Ships used them for a proper navigation and reached their destination. Now it is opened for public use at a very small fees for visit the top of it and enjoy the beauty of marina beach on birds eye view. Must visit this place if you want a full view of marina beach from the top. No doubt you must enjoy it. Dont miss it if you visit marina beach.

  • Great place to visit for a beautiful view of "Namma Chennai Marina Beach!". Time for visiting is 9am-12pm and 3pm-6pm. Best time to visit is evening. Mostly uses elevator to go to top. Any age can visit this place. Only Monday holiday! Have fun, Be safe! Your safety first!

  • Must Watch Place.. Kids will love to see this .. beauty of marina can be seen from the top. Birds eye view. It would be very nice if some one explains about it history, functions and purposes. Glass view lifts may make experience more pleasant
