The lighthouse was one of the wonders of the ancient world. It was built in 280 BC and destroyed in 1323 after some earthquakes. At the time it was the tallest man made structure standing at 137m with it’s light being seen up to 35 miles out at sea. Plans have been put forward to the Egyptian government to build a replica near the site of the original lighthouse.
