National Lighthouse Day

A Special cover was released at Kaup on 21st September 2021to celebrate the National Lighthouse Day. On this occasion our member Mr.K Sridhar exhibited his collection of stamps and other Philatelic items related to Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse tower in Kaup was built in the year 1901 on a 12 meter high rock in the sea shore. At the time of commissioning, the tower was painted in white colour, but in 1935 the painting scheme was changed to black and white bands. It is a circular masonry tower with a total height of 34 meters.
