we walked this, although the usual Indian security of no photos was enforced. The flower markets nearby were most interesting as well. Seeing the main railway and its hustle and bustle at the other side was eye opening.

This is the landmark of Kolkata. It is connecting the twin city kolkata and Howrah. It is the lifeline of the city.

As Giant Howrah station welcomes you with chilling air, it is a air from Hugli river. Your sight will meet at the massive bridge from Howrah station..

Photography on the bridge is prohibited,... More

I decided to walk from one end to another in the evening. The construction of the bridge is amazing. Offers some interesting views. Very clean compared to the rest of the city.

While a neccessity for Kolkatans, connecting Howrah to Kolkata, Howrah Bridge is as much a tourist destination. It still pulls you to the old Victorian age and travel back in time. The beauty of the architecture is unparalleled. Even if you are travelling by air, please do visit Howrah Bridge overlooking the Ganges
