Colombo Lighthouse

A light to guide the way

The new lighthouse, which stands 29 metres tall (95 feet), was built after the Old Colombo Lighthouse was decommissioned in 1952 because neighbouring structures blocked its light as part of the Colombo Harbor Expansion project. It was inaugurated by Rt Hon D. S. Senanayake, Ceylon's first prime minister. It stands on a 12 m (39 ft) high concrete pedestal with four lion statues at its base. It became a city landmark because of the panoramic view of the Indian Ocean it offers.
