There is something about Lighthouses that interest everyone. Be its history, its splendid location or its commanding views from the top, all lighthouses have a certain oomph factor.
Such lighthouses were the norm for 2 and a half centuries till modern navigation devices took over. Personally, I have been to quite a few of such lighthouses and find them real interesting. In today’s era, we will find that most of the lighthouses are closed for the common man, but if you do find one that allows entrance, climb right to the top, relish the wafting sea breeze and soak in the stunning views of the coastline and the open waters.
And if you happen to exploring the fort area of Galle in Sri Lanka, do try and pay a visit to this strikingly white lighthouse that functions even today. The lighthouse in itself is a great sight against the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. I am sure the views from the top will be even better though tourists are not allowed to climb to the top.
And be it a sunny day or a dark cloudy day, this scene will remain etched in your memory for a long time. Such is its beauty.
