Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
Climb the stairs and enjoy the panorama from Thangassery Light House, the tallest lighthouse on the coast of Kerala. Built in 1902, this 43 m (144 ft) tall cylindrical tower features red and white diagonal stripes, making it a landmark of the area. Look back down at the interesting pattern created by the spiral staircase inside the tower, then see the sun set and the moon rise simultaneously. With its red oblique bands, the structure resembles a giant candy cane from afar.

  • We travelled 20 Km to see 5he light house, no one has mentioned in the reviews that it is closed during Covid. So please don't waste your time in traveling and if you want to go, take confirmation...  more »
  • Lighthouse very helpful for fisherman because that light make way of fisherman. Light depends upon the height.  more »
  • Its a beautiful experience to reach the top of the light house. You can enjoy a wonderful view of the sea & waterfront view of the city. There‚Äôs a lift inside the lighthouse itself. So, everybody can go up without any worries.
  • Very good place to visit... About 193 steps upwards to the top of the lighthouse and lift facility also here .. when you used lift it is only up to second floor and balance 45 step you should be very careful... When you reached to the top very fabulous and scenic view...
