1860 (station established 1829). Inactive since 1952. 29 m (95 ft) square cylindrical brick tower with lantern and gallery. Lighthouse painted white with unpainted stone trim; lantern is gray metallic. The tower rises from an open, arched base. A photo is at right, and another excellent photo is available. Huelse has a historic postcard view in which the tower has a brown horizontal band below the gallery, a band also seen in David Meare's 1964 photo. This lighthouse was built as a clock tower in 1857; the lantern was apparently added in 1860. The early history of this station is somewhat obscure. Light list data, which shows the clocktower light already in use by 1865 with 1860 as the date of construction. The lighthouse was deactivated after its light became obscured by nearby buildings. Located at Chatham Street and Janadhipathi Mawatha in downtown Colombo; Google has a satellite view. Site open, tower closed.
