India's lighthouses are stars of the shore, beacons of brilliance and luminaries of lore. With more than 100 lighthouses across 7 districts dotting the Indian peninsula, these lighthouses form a stellar constellation along our coastline. Some still shine for ships, others share their stories with us first-hand as museums, as tourist attractions, and as Indian history in the making. It is estimated that the oldest standing lighthouse in India is at Mahabalipuram.
