it is a engineering marvel being a suspended bridge but thats it. Not worth visiting given it is usually full of traffic and it doesnt even provide a great sight.

The oldest and most convenient bridge of Kolkata connecting Howrah with Kolkata. This Bridge was built by British Rulers and the most important thing is that it has no Nut & Bolts instead all soldered.

Visited kolkata recently on work purposes. Had a chance to pass through this legendary structure that defines the city of kolkata. Its a single bridge without any supports underneath. It connects the cities of howrah and kolkata. The bridge is indeed a wonder as its joints are only rivets. The entire bridge stands on that. Good visit
