Light House tour

The long Chennai coastline, dotted with statues along the Marina, is a viewer’s delight. Come August, an aerial view of the same would be possible. The light house, at the end of Kamaraj Salai, is to be reopened to the public.  It had been closed in the aftermath of the tragic assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991.

The 45.72 metre high tower has 10 floors and boasts of being the only light house within city limits in the country and also the first light house with an elevator.  Public is sure to pour in and necessary security and safety measures have to be enhanced.

The 27-year old elevator car is to be replaced by a glass module so that the public can view the city through the lift car. Soon a bird’s eye view of the Bay will be added to the itinerary of any Chennai visitor.
