Like most of us I just wanted to visit the famous Howrah Bridge, so on my trip to Kolkata I told my driver to include Howrah bridge on the route. The bridge itself is an engineering marvels, and considering the period in which it was built, it is an engineering feat.
The only problem is that the complete area has traffic congestion, one side of the bridge has busy train terminus Howrah Terminus whereas the other end has the busiest market of Kolkata Bada Bazaar. I too us almost 15 mins to scroll through a distance few hundered meters. Due to this congestion there is no possibility of getting down on the bridge to explore the bridge closely.
All said and done it is good to include this in your route through Kolkata.
