Antervedi Lighthouse ( Narsapur Lighthouse )
Antervedi Lighthouse, previously known as Narsapur Lighthouse named after Narsapur point, is situated on the East Bank of Vasishta Godavari river entrance. The name Antervedi for the Lighthouse was adopted from the name of the nearby temple of Antervedi Narsimha Swamy. The station is approachable by road from Rajahmundry Railway station about 40 km away. The buses ply up to Antervedi Narasimha Swamy Temple (Via) Ravuapalam and Razole and then by walk the last stretch of about 2 km. A 2.5 m high Square Brick masonry column existed half a kilometer west of the present Lighthouse which served as a Beacon during the early years of 20th century. It is not known who built the Beacon but it served well for over four decades as a day mark.. This was probably the original Narsapur point beacon. The construction of the new Lighthouse was started in 1966-67 and completed in 1970-71. The optical equipment supplied by M/s B.B.T., Paris, was installed on the tower. The lighthouse was commissioned on 28th June 1971. Later on the Radio Beacon equipment supplied by M/s Nautel, Canada, was installed at the station and put on the Air on 31st January 1980. The light source was changed to Metal Halide lamp 230V 400W on 18th September 1997.
