Pulicat Lighthouse

The Lighthouse station is separated from Pulicat town by a sea water channel. Pulicat is 20 km by road from Ponneri railway station. There is a regular ferry boat service available to cross the channel and reach the Lighthouse after 5 minutes walk. The lighthouse at this site is meant to warn against the existence of a shoal about 4 NM from the shore. The shoal extends more than 9 NM toward south. The LH expert Mr Alan D Stevenson on his visit to this lighthouse in 1926 observed the light to be extremely low powered for the purpose of marking such danger. Besides he also mentioned about frequent Malarial attacks infesting the station.There was an old Lighthouse positioned adjacent to the present Lighthouse Tower. It was a 20m high Brick masonry circular tower with black & white bands. The tower was constructed in the year 1859. The equipment consisting of a fourth order optic with PV light was installed on this tower The equipment remained in service till 1986 after certain modifications carried out in 1910. The present Lighthouse Tower was constructed during 1984-85 and PRB-21 equipment supplied by M/s Asia Navigation Aids, New Delhi was installed and commissioned on 25th August 1986. The old Lighthouse Tower was later dismantled. Sealed beam D type lamps were replaced by Auto head lights with 24V 100W halogen lamps in 1995. Pulicut will be also be a DGPS station
