The light house is quite beautiful though climb to top is tough for the elderly. But it is fun to see light house machinery at work.The view from top is great .

It was a great experience to visit any lighthouse as you will get the complete view of the city as well as the ocean. IT also has a lift which was started in december 2016 but the last level is using a small narrow ladder which was difficult with 2 year old kid but it was manageable.

Charged an entrance fee of 50 rupees each. The lighthouse itself is very well maintained and I was surprised there was a modern air-conditioned lift inside. The lift took you almost to the top and then there was a steep ladder to climb. The views from the top were lovely though and definitely worth the effort.
