    The building of a lighthouse on the small Mohni Island in the Gulf of Finland off Cape Purekkari in the Lahemaa National Park started early in the 19th century.

    The lighthouse, lying at 59° 41,04' northern latitude and 25° 47,73' eastern longitude, was thoroughly reconstructed in 1871, with two stories added and the lighting system revamped. At present Mohni lighthouse stands 27,4 m high and its light is visible to 10 nautical miles.
