Rawalpir Tomb Lighthouse

Rawal Pir lighthouse is existing on the star board side at the entrance to the Mandvi Port. It is approachable by a village road and is about 8 Km from Mandvi Lighthouse. In 1936 a lantern was kept on the tomb of a Mohammaden ascetic-the Pir. Subsequently a separate cylindrical tower was raised near the tomb in 1947 for placing the Lantern regularly on it. The green filter was added in the same lantern in 1957.The ships could anchor easily at the entrance taking assistance of this light (Green) and the breakwater light (Red). The light was shifted on to a new structure built nearby in 1969 and 300mm optical equipment with DA gas burner was commissioned into service on 26th December 1969. The sun valve was introduced in 1973. The DA gas equipment was replaced by Solar powered equipment with electronic control in 1993. It was commissioned into service on 10th May 1993.A 65m tower for installing X Band Radar for the proposed VTS for the Gulf of Kachchh is planned at this site.
