The busiest palce , in the busiest city is on the verge of ruins. Not well maintained, The beetel spats spatted all over and the top to bottom do not have any anti corrosion elements to protect it from the corrosion

It's truly a grand structure which still looks splendid and magnificent to this day! A must see for everyone at Kolkata though it'll be wise to avoid the crowded times, if you feel like taking a walk across this bridge.. It will be worth it!

It is a link between the twin citys Calcutta and Howrah. Amezing to see how it was built 75 yrs ago when no major Cranes or mechanical means were available!! If possible walk across it.

Very crowded, busy with traffic, people and cows. Only go if you have not seen this aspect of India. Area around Howrah bridge is downright filthy with open urinals and stench of rotting vegetables. Its better to see it from a distance!

Your trip to Kolkatta is incomplete without a drive along the Howrah bridge.. its gives a rustic feel and you can view the real buzz of the city..
