Oluvil Lighthouse

Oluvil Lighthouse
Oluvil Lighthouse is one of the lighthouses in the country. It is located in the coastal village of Oluvil on the southeastern shore of Sri Lanka.

The feasibility studies for the development of Oluvil port were done during the period of 1995 - 1999 and after that the lighthouse was erected immediately along with a circuit bungalow and officers' quarters by Sri Lanka Port Authority (SLPA) near the port site. The lighthouse was declared open on 19 June 1999 by the then Sri Lanka's Minister for Port Development, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction, M. H. M. Ashraff.

The tower is 84 feet tall (Ameerdeen, 2006).
