Howrah Bridge is a marvel constructed by Britishers, still standing tall and strong.If anyone from north or east Kolkata wants to reach Howrah Station one needs to traverse Howrah Bridge.

Howrah bridge, over the river Hooghly has a history to it. Built by the British back then is still the most important bridge connecting Calcutta and Howrah. The best view of the Howrah bridge is from the ghats or on a shikara.

No second bridge -suspension bridge like this has been ever built in India and will be ever build in India again. A must to see place in Kolkata.

It has always been on my mind to be on the Howrah bridge and I did it this time. It's just a bridge with traffic ... Buses trucks and all but I enjoyed it. It is an iconic structure. Enjoyed the traffic :)

You can have a good view of both the new and old Hawra bridge if you take a steamer from Howrah Railway Station to Kolkata central city.
