Visit to a lighthouse

Along with the visit to the fishing village when the boats were returning from the catch, another highlight of our holiday was a visit to the Muttom lighthouse.

The lighthouse from our living quarters . . .
Established in 1882

Looking south from the top of the lighthouse
Looking north . . .

The huge reflectors used to send to throw the beam

View of the spiral staircase

Another view of the spiral staircase. Was reminded of Tintin in the 'Black Island'

The tickets . . .

  2. The Mutton Beach is a rocky beach famous for its caves. Surrounded by a quiet fishing village, the beach makes a idyllic getaway for anyone looking for a short break from the city life.
    One can really see all this from this light house.
    Check out other really cool places to visit in kanyakumari as well.
