Lighthouse
Enjoy the view from Alappuzha Lighthouse, a historic cylindrical masonry tower and a major tourist attraction. This giant red and white banded chess tower stands 30 m (98 ft) tall above swaying palm trees. Climb its teakwood spiral staircase to the open-top balcony to get a 360 panoramic view of the Alleppey port and the city as well as the open sea. Built in 1862, the lighthouse still operates manually. A small lighthouse museum building is located in the gardens around the tower. By using our Alappuzha family vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Alappuzha Lighthouse and other attractions in Alappuzha.
