About Dwarka Lighthouse (Light House)

75%
voted as clean

Dwarka Lighthouse was constructed at Rupen Creek during the early 19th century. In order to lift a lamp, a flag mast was posted at the port, which thereafter served as a lighthouse. In 1866, eighteen metres tall square tower was constructed at this site, along with an installation of an oil wick lamp.

The present day tower measures around 43 metres in height and was constructed between 1960 and 1962. On 15th July 1962, this lighthouse was inaugurated by the then transport minister Mr. Raj Bahadur.

In addition to the tower, a RCC Baffle wall was constructed at the site for installing the sound horn equipment and vibrators that can work as fog signals. In 1988, this fog signal service was terminated.

Further, on 15th April 1964, this lighthouse was commissioned with other advanced facilities. From this lighthouse, travellers can see the panoramic sight of sunset. This lighthouse is located at a distance of 35 km from the main town and features serene atmosphere that is perfect for relaxing.

"A beautiful and well-maintained place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 14, 2016
Near Gomati Sangam point the Dwarka Lighthouse is constructed. The entire complex area is well-maintained. In the compound we can see a Ganapathy Temple. In the evening people assemble here for viewing sunset and for enjoying the natural beauty of sea.

"Beautiful place with good place for kids"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 4, 2016
It was our first experience to visit a Lighthouse which not only showed way to ship but also great thing to go into the past. It was all thrilling and there is a temple of Lord Jagannath where blessing of God can be begged. A beautiful beach where kids can have a great time.

"View from outside"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Nov 6, 2015
This place is not opened for common people. Lot of restrictions. One can have its view from sea beach and back of Hotel Lords. One can visit it after 4 PM and can take permission from caretaker to get inside and if he is in good mood then he may permit you.
