“The bridge on heaven!”

Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge
Ranked #4 of 34 things to do in Rameswaram
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Road bridge which connects the temple town of Rameswaram with Mainland India is nothing short of an Engineering marvel! The second longest and the first such bridge over the sea in India, the bridge is over 2.3 KMs long and stands right over the light blue shallow waters filled with Corals and is a perfect treat to the Eye!
I took a stroll on the bridge, which is highly recomended. And I was in for a luck, since the time I went, the Rameswaram Chennai Express was crossing over to the Island on the Pamban railway bridge! What a sight that was!

Yes, this road connecting the temple island of Rameswaram is a marvel of engineering and also offers a magnificent view of the natures bouquet.
On one side one gets the clear view of the railway bridge running parallel to this road. The steel structure of the railway bridge snaking over the sea offers an awe inspiring sight. At the center of the bridge there is draw bridge to lift both left and right arm to allow the boats to pass. The other side offers the view of the boats waiting to pass.
The panorama of the sea with the boats looks etheral with sun light reflecting on the sheet of sea water. I am sure your camera will nudge you to use it to take pictures after pictures.

Hyped a lot. It is nice to see it once but nothing much to see other than the fact that it is on Sea

This bridge connects Rameshwaram to mainland India. Rameshwaram actually is an island. The view from this bridge is great and you can also see a parallel railway bridge in the sea.
