Sampur, which has been liberated by the Security Forces from the LTTE terrorists (in 2007) , is home to one of the most famous lighthouses in the country. The Foul Point Lighthouse (aka Sampur Lighthouse) has been guiding seafarers safely to their destinations for decades.

The lighthouse was built in 1863 with a height of 32 metres and diameter of 25 metres. The lighthouse is built in to 5 levels with steel stairs. Due the war situation in the past this has not been maintained and stairs are in a dilapidated condition and cannot be used.
