Overview
Situated at the end of Talaimannar Road is the Talaimannar pier. The ancient light house there is a construction done by the British in 1915. It is a white concrete round cylindrical tower with a height of 17 metres. Every five second, a light which has the luminous range of 10 NM flashes as a beacon to vessels out at sea. The lighthouse is not used at present even though it is in working condition.
The Talaimannar Pier is situated next to the lighthouse. Part of the pier had been destroyed during the conflict. The pier projects from the mainland and supports a double railway track. In 1964, the pier was damaged by a cyclone. After three years, this was repaired and the ferry service operated until 1983.
