Old Thalaimannar Lighthouse (Urumalai Lighthouse)

The Old Thalaimannar Lighthouse (Urumalai Lighthouse) is located at that south of the island at the start of the Adams Bridge, the natural sand bank which stretch all the way to India.  This area is called Urumalai, thus this is also known as Urumalai Lighthouse.

This is a Iron Structure where  fire was used as the navigation light at the top. It is said to have been constructed in the colonial era (1915?). Currently only this iron Structure built on 6 long steel pipes stands tall with no indication of it being a light house.

This structure today lies inside a Naval Base and you cannot go to this structure. Yet you can get a good view of this light house from the entrance of the camp.
