Coronation Bridge, Darjeeling

(200+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
Traverse the cleverly engineered span of Coronation Bridge, a striking white and raspberry-red reinforced concrete structure. Supported by a single arch, the bridge crosses the Teesta River and connects the districts of Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling. Commissioned to commemorate the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1937, it was completed in 1941, and affords sweeping views of the verdant valley and river below. Note the two lion statues at one entrance. Put Coronation Bridge and other Darjeeling attractions into our Darjeeling travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Heritage bridge, named to commemorate the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1937 and was completed in 1941. The foundation stone of the bridge was laid by John Anderson, the-then Governor of Bengal in 1937. Locals call the bridge Baghpool, meaning tiger bridge, because of the two lion statues (bagh actually means tiger) at one entrance of the bridge.
  • Repainted the whole bridge from Pink to White on Feb 2017. Great Driving Experience through this Bridge. Nice views and fresh air. Many tourists visits here for a well known Kali Mandir there.
  • This bridge is located in the Sevoke also know as bhag pool. The mesmerizing natural beauty and the environment always pull the traveller.
  • Engineering Marvel Built before independence and connecting North East to rest of India by road.
  • This bridge is situated over the river Teesta and this is between two different hills. This is an example of great architecture. Scenic beauty from here are awesome. Very popular among the tourists.
