Jaigarh Head (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Jaigarh Head has Karateshwar Point at its NW extremity; this point appears from seaward to be a level and almost barren plateau terminating in steep rocky cliffs. A Hindu temple stands on the steep face of the cliffs. Jaigarh Head has been reported to be a good radar target at 20 miles.

Jaigarh Head Light is shown from a tall, black iron tower with white bands, on the SW end of Jaigarh Head.

Dhamankhol Light is shown from a white tower about 0.5 mile NE of Jaigarh Head Light.

Jaigarh Fort, an old fortress containing a few houses, is situated on a rocky point, about 2 miles E of Jaigarh Head Light; a light is shown from the NW corner of the fort. The town of Jaigarh extends along the coast for about 0.8 mile S of the fort.

A dangerous wreck lies 23 miles W of Jaigarh Head.
