Light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis takes place in granum part of the chloroplast.


Chloroplast is the organelle that contains chlorophyll to entrap light for photosynthesis.

Chloroplast is a double membrane organelle. It has two parts, i.e. granum and stroma .

Granum is made up of thylakoids piled up one above the other. The chlorophyll molecules are embedded in the membranes of thyllakoids.

Light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis thus takes place in granum part of the chloroplast as it contains chlorophyll molecules to entrap light.
