NEW DELHI (TIP): India is to promote heritage lighthouses as tourist destinations. Out of fifteen heritage lighthouses having historical importance, in the first phase, Konhoji Angere lighthouse in Maharashtra will be taken up for development.
The Ministry of Tourism plans to support construction of a boat jetty and passenger terminal at Konhoji Angere lighthouse. The Konhoji Angere island is situated about a miles away from the Gateway of India, Bombay. Once the jetty is built, domestic as well as international tourists will get a new day-trip destination in India’s commercial capital and its most cosmopolitan city.
