Chhachhi Lighthouse

In the ancient period nearby Sandhan was a busy port which was later on abandoned due to heavy silting of the water way. There did not however exist any lighted beacon earlier at Chhachhi. In order to provide uniform coverage and important land mark for the vessels entering the Gulf of Kachchh, this lighthouse was planned during 1955-56.( the first five year plan).Chhachhi village is linked by a road to Mandvi-Naliya highway. From Chhachhi village to the Lighthouse about one km portion is an un-metalled road which gets cut off during monsoons.Initially, a DA gas flashing light inside a 300mm cut and polished drum optic and Lantern on MS Trestle was installed in 1957. It was followed by the construction of the present Lighthouse Tower. The revolving electrically operated lighting equipment was supplied by M/s BBT, Paris. The light was commissioned into service on 15th June 1964. The emergency light source working on DA gas was replaced by 12V/100W halogen lamp on 20th May 1993. The direct drive system was integrated at the station on 20th January 1997.A 65 metres Radar tower with X Band Radar has been planned for the proposed VTS in the Gulf of kachchh at Chhachhi.
