Gopalpur Lighthouse

The station is approachable by an all weather road from Brahmapur Railway Station about 10 km away on Howrah-Chennai route. Gopalpur Lighthouse came into existence in 1871 for assisting coastal shipping between Rangoon and Coromandal coast ports. The steamer service to Rangoon also touched Gopalpur. The first beacon was a wick lamp with 6th order optic hoisted from the top of steel mast of 8 m height, erected at a position approximately near the present R.B. Aerial mast. In 1892 4th order optic replaced the old optic The same mast was also used for hoisting the storm warning signals. A steel trestle frame was raised in 1925 by the side of mast and the DA gas light was installed on it. A masonry room was built near the trestle to store the gas cylinders. Due to the heavy erosion during the early 1943 the gas Cylinder Room and Trestle Tower got heavily damaged and the light was discontinued remained withdrawn due to world war. In 1948 a new gas light inside 500 mm Lantern was established on a hillock about a km North from the coast. The light was installed over an MS Trestle 8 m high.A masonry room was provided for storing DA gas cylinders. This system continued for about 20 years.The new Stone masonry Lighthouse with lighting equipment supplied by M/s B.B.T, Paris was commissioned on 15th December 1967.The Radio Beacon equipment supplied by M/s MACE, Visakhapatnam, was installed at the station which started transmission on 25th November 1992.The Radio beacon service from here will be discotinued.
