Jaigad Lighthouse Overview

Situated in one of the western bastions of the Jaigad Fort, the Jaigad Lighthouse is an ancient engineering marvel and a must-visit among the prominent tourist places in Ganpatipule. A British army officer named John Oswald constructed the tower in 1832.

Although it looks like a structure of brick and concrete, it is actually made of cast iron and steel. The casting and rivets are worth studying. A jetty port is located nearby and the lighthouse, newly fitted with LED lights, guards ships sailing between Ratnagiri and Dabhol.

The climb to the summit is worthwhile as the structure is built atop a hill and offers a gorgeous 360-degree view of the bay and the open sea. It is a quiet, peaceful place where the forceful sea wind caresses your face, making you feel revitalized.
