Samiyani Island North Lighthouse

The Beacon is situated on the northern tip of Samiyani island and marks the star board side of the entrance of channel leading to Okha port. The port authorities maintain a Buoy with Red light on the port hand side in order to define the entrance of the channel. The lighthouse can be approached from Samiyani main light by cautiously walking during the low tide days. It can also be approached directly by boat from Okha during fair season when the sea is calm.There was a 10 m MS tower erected in 1935 near to the present site. The trestle tower was painted red & white and a light with fixed character was placed on it. A red filter was later on introduced. The light was converted to occulting character in 1936. The Lighthouse Trestle served for about 20 years during which it was badly rusted and was rendered unsafe. A new concrete tower was constructed at the edge of the reef in 1957. The DA gas equipment with 200 mm optic (and red filter) was installed on this tower. It was commissioned on 1st June 1957.A new DA gas equipment with Red filter in 300 mm optic & lantern fitted with a sun valve of AGA make replaced the old equipment in 1962. When the improvement of Aids to navigation in the gulf of Kachchh was taken up during 1980s, this Red light was converted to Green .light. In 1994 the DA gas equipment was replaced by Halogen lamp operating on electronic flasher (JLWL) and Solar panels charged Batteries.The lighthouse was washed away by the devastating cyclone on 9th June 1998. The light was then temporarily shifted on to a 10 m M.S. Trestle tower raised 20 m away, in October 1998. The new RCC tower was constructed close to the old position in July 2002 and the 300 mm optical equipment with electronic flasher (JLWL) was installed and commissioned on 31st August 2002.
