Asia's First Concrete Bridge Muvattupuzha, the beautiful town in Ernakulam district has many specialties. The nature itself creates magic and make us forget all the hustles and bustles of your busy life. Muvattupuzha is also blessed with high ranges, which makes you feel that you are lost at some hill stations.

The current MC Road or State Highway 1 was the longest National Highway in Travancore connecting Ankamali to Trivandrum. This was built when the slower water transport was the standard popular mode in Kerala. This is built across the second largest river in Travancore, River Muvattupuzha to complete the connectivity. A new bridge is built beside the old one but it seems that the older one is stringer. The arch motif seen in Travancore bridges, albeit very small, could be observed here. Nothing here is charming and considering it an attraction is a bit out of place.

Built by the Diwan of Travancore in 1914 AD
Jul 2016 • Solo
The old bridge was built across Moovattupuzha by the Diwan of Travancore in 1914 under the supervision of a British Engineer and I have heard from my Grand father that during the inauguration the engineer stood below the bridge while twelve elephants were made to walk through the bridge to convince the public about the strength and durability of the bridge. The bridge is also believed to be the first concrete bridge in Asia. In 1970's the new bridge was constructed and the traffic was diverted through the new one.
