with many good vegetations, harbours, and Wildlife sanctuary. This location makes exactly
a right turn corner in coastline which may leads to accidents. The estimated horizontal light
distance is 13km. Analysis and design of Lighthouse building was done as per IS code
456:2000, IS 875 part 3 1987, 1893 part 4 2005, IS2911 (part1/sec3):2010. Light house
