Lighthouse, Bombay

It is called the Prongs Lighthouse It is used even today for the purpose it was built, in 1874. This lighthouse marks the entrance to Mumbai Harbour, and replaced the onshore Colaba Point lighthouse, of which no trace remains today. Located about 2.5 kilometres off the southernmost tip of Colaba, it emits a white flash every 10 seconds. (Taken from blog by Anuradha Shankar)
