The Taj lighthouse was built in 1876 on the islet of Vela Sestrica, on the northwestern side of the Kornati National Park. It consists of a high octagonal metal tower and a building. It was erected at 47 meters above sea level, a 26-meter tower of metal construction, and iron rivets that have not been modified to date have been used for joining. The lighthouse's stone building, which covers an area of 500 square meters, is connected to the tower by an enclosed stone bridge, which was reportedly built afterwards to facilitate lighthouse access to the tower when the weather is bad. The Thayer lighthouse on Sestrica Vela Island is 15 nautical miles south of Zadar, one mile from Long Island and Kornati, on the edge of Kornati National Park and Telascica Nature Park, and named Thayer.
