Stairway Spirals, Tangasseri Lighthouse at Quilon, Kerala, India

 

" I'm only human, I'm just a man

Lord, Help me believe in what I could be, and all that I am,

Show me the stairway

I have to climb, Lord for my sake

Teach me to take, one day at a time..."

 

 

Tangasseri Point Lighthouse station, Quilon/ Kollam (08 °52.7’ N 76°34.0’ E)

The British East India Co had factories at Tellicherry & Anjengo and other interests along the coast. To assist their fleet they raised a column at this site during the mid 19th century and placed on it an oil lamp. The present Tangasseri Point Lighthouse tower was established in 1902. This tower (42m above MSL) has a brick masonry murette (Red and White diagonal stripes) with wooden lining inside. The present light source is a 230V 400 W metal halide lamp (which flashes White thrice every 15 seconds having a range of 20 nautical miles) was put in to operation on 15th May 1994.
