Valsad Khari Lighthouse

The Lighthouse station is about 8 km west of Valsad town and is connected by a pucca road. The nearby village Kosamba is inhibited by fishing community.The light is provided on the South side of the entrance to Valsad Khadi. Auranga River flows into the Valsad Khadi providing a natural harbour for fishing crafts of all sizes. It was an important port till 15th century. The forest produce specially the teakwood, Rice and mangoes were the main items of export while salt, tiles, bricks, coconut products, etc were imported through this port. Portuguese captured the territory in 1500 but could not retain for long and handed over to the British.The first beacon here was provided in 1866. It was a mast on which a wick lamp used to be hoisted during fair season. Afterwards an improved Kerosene light in 6th order optic was introduced in 1883. A 10 m mast replaced the old mast in 1930. A flashing gas light equipment with 10m GI trestle supplied by BBT Paris was installed on a new trestle in 1966. The same light was further improved in 1978 and the light was now made available through out the year instead of fair season only. In April 1996 the gas flasher was replaced by a flasher with electronic controls and halogen lamp working on 12V, 180 AH batteries charged by Solar panels. A new 30m G.I. Trestle was erected during 1998, over which 500mm equipment brought from Lighthouse workshop,Jamnagar was installed together with newly designed electronic flasher (JLWL), halogen lamp etc. The new light was commissioned into service on 16th December 1998.
