Create an itinerary including Thangassery Light House
Climb the stairs and enjoy the panorama from Thangassery Light House, the tallest lighthouse on the coast of Kerala. Built in 1902, this 43 m (144 ft) tall cylindrical tower features red and white diagonal stripes, making it a landmark of the area. Look back down at the interesting pattern created by the spiral staircase inside the tower, then see the sun set and the moon rise simultaneously. With its red oblique bands, the structure resembles a giant candy cane from afar.

  • It was really a worthwhile visit to the light house...loved the view from the light house and also to see such a historic monument. It's well maintained. And the visit time is from 10 am to 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm till 6.00 pm. There is a basic ticket rate of Rs. 20 for adults and Rs. 10 for children, Senior citizens Rs. 10 and foreign nationals Rs.50. The light house has a lift inside making it easy to reach the top, however there are few stairs that needed to be climbed to reach up. We have to remove the footwear before entering the light house. The premises also has a small park for the kids.
  • Situated near to Thankasheri St Thomas fort. Ticket costs 10 rupees per person plus 30 for mobile camera. It looks so simple until you start climbing the steps. Last part is a vertical ladder. Also there is a elevator inside the light house. The visuals from the top of the light house is priceless and very attractive. The best time to go is in the evening. Good for friends and couples. If you go along with kids, even though it's good you have to be very careful. You can see overall view of Fort also.
