Chennai Lighthouse

Chennai's lighthouse is the only one in India with an elevator.  Unveiled in 1977, the Chennai lighthouse is the fourth built in this spot. As you can see from the Chennai lighthouse photo taken on Marina Beach, the sea-facing side of the triangular structure is horizontally striped red and white.  Tourists are not allowed inside the landmark but there is a lighthouse museum planned where visitors can see the 11-story structure up close.  If you are in Chennai, the lighthouse is easy to spot along Beach Road, also known as Kamarajar Salai at the intersection of Santhome High Road.
