Galle Fort Lighthouse- Galle
Over looking the picturesque Indian Ocean, Galle Fort Lighthouse is located within historic Galle Fort. It the oldest of the only 14 lighthouses remaining in Sri Lanka. The original structure was built in 1848, but was destroyed in a fire in the 1930s. The current lighthouse was built 100 meters away from the original site upon ramparts standing 6 meters (19.5 feet) above sea level. The lighthouse stands just over 26 meters (85 feet) high which gives it a commanding, panoramic harbor view.
