It is indeed a great piece of engineering. The view was SPELL BOUND and the description cannot be put in words. You need to see it to believe it.

An interesting bridge, with a view over the river with Howrah on one side and Calcutta on the other. Perfect for taking photos - until some policemen with a large stick tells you to move on as photography is banned. Typical of some attitudes I've found in the country - "I'm in charge, I'm superior" which can spoil the experience. It did here. Walk and enjoy, keep the Nikons under wraps.

They say that it is the most used bridge in the world - I am not sure if that is true or not (but it is easy to believe).

The experience of crossing this in an Auto-Rickshaw has to be one of the experiences of India - It is mayhem.

Do not try to take photos on the bridge - that is forbidden by local security services.
