Dondra Lighthouse in Sri Lanka

This lighthouse is located in a wonderful exotic location on Cape Dondra and is one of the highest on the entire coast of southeast Asia. The structure was erected in 1889 by order of William Douglas, an employee of the British Imperial Lighthouse Service. All building material necessary for the construction of this structure was specially delivered from England. The granite slabs from which the walls of the lighthouse were built were brought from the quarries of Scotland.

The height of the tower is 49 meters, and to climb to the very top, you need to overcome 196 steps. The lighthouse was built in the shape of an octagonal pyramid. It rises surrounded by palm trees and other tropical plants, blending harmoniously into the surrounding landscape. This object is still functioning, and the lighthouse keeper makes sure that the fire on the tower lights up on time every day.
