Thangassery Light House, Kollam

(4.4/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Kollam attractions like Thangassery Light House can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
