The Colombo Lighthouse is a beacon of hope and guidance on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Located at Point de Galle, it stands proud in the face of the Indian Ocean, warning passing ships of forbidding reefs and treacherous rocks as they make their way along the trade routes. Constructed in 1848 to replace an earlier lighthouse destroyed by fire, this new structure was designed by James Walker, an engineer from England who had previously designed lighthouses in Bombay and Calcutta.
Standing at over 64 feet tall, the Colombo Lighthouse is a magnificent sight - its distinctive white tower topped with its iconic red lantern room making it easily visible from both land and sea. At night, this impressive structure casts its light out to sea for up to 20 miles away - offering a beacon of security for seafarers both near and far! The lantern room houses four lights powered by oil lamps or candles when electricity wasn’t available during wartime.
In addition to being a functional navigational aid and helping sailors steer clear of danger while at sea, the lighthouse has also become an important piece of history in Sri Lanka. It remains an iconic symbol associated with this beautiful country located along the ancient spice route that connected Europe with Asia centuries ago!
Today, visitors can take tours of the lighthouse where they will be able to explore the upper floor which features displays about maritime safety and lighthouses in general. They can also climb up to the top of the lantern room where they will get breathtaking views across the bay - offering them a unique perspective on this magical part of the world!
