Batticaloa Lighthouse

The Batticaloa Lighthouse is yet another reminder of the colonial era which had a strong influence on this town. Built during the reign of the British in 1913, the lighthouse sits right on the crossroads where the Batticaloa Lagoon meets the Indian Ocean, greeting any ship coming in from the east. This lighthouse is probably one of the smallest, measuring only 28m in height, however, it is probably one of the most picturesque, since it is nestled between the lagoon and the ocean. Also, kids will especially enjoy the park at the base of the lighthouse; relish in your surroundings while the kids play in the park.
