Very beautifully built and one of the oldest bridges. But is is very crowded in the evening with a lot of traffic jam. Better to see from far rather than actually using this route.

This bridge connects the both sides of the city. It is an architectural wonder too. I have been here at day time and at night too. This bridge is always packed with vehicles.
