Refreshing view from the bridge; Ganga / Hoogly river below. Fantastic view. One can walk around on the sides of the bridge while busy thorough fare goes on the centre. Mostly croweded with vendors moving around with big headload for transporting goods.

The bridge is very old, built by british, using ultra modern technology. The huge bridge is standing without any pillar.

IT is one of the places to see when in Kolkata. Enjoy the view and admire the engineering. At night the view becomes even more mesmerizing.

Its a good place for photographers who would get good sunset or sunrise views. Other than that, its not worth going. It has become old and rusty. From Howrah river you can go to dakshineshwar temple directly through boat on selected timings.

No matter how dirty, noisy, polluted the city is, one can never take away the charm of crossing the gigantic bridge from Kolkata. I can spend hours looking at the bridge from distance.

Marvellous construction. Epitome of engineering. You can take ferry from bank of Ganes to reach the bridge. It is wonder of engineering standing still over the Ganges.

Worth a visit. We just took a ferry ride which takes one close to the bridge. But we did it during the day hence the bridge didn't look so spectacular. But it was worth the ride.
