Travel Talk

On 25th March 1864, this light house became operational after optical equipment with four wick burners was installed here. A dome on top of the lighthouse tower enables tourists to view the entrance to the lantern room. The lantern was painted white instead of red or orange in order to make sunrise and sunset more noticeable. An important thing to be noted is that tourists looking forward to visit Oyster Rock Light House need prior permission from authorities as the site is situated near the defence project INS Kadamba.
