Coronation Bridge, Darjeeling

(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Awesome scenic beauty. Must visit if you are coming to siliguri. Kali mata mandir is nearby.
  • We crossed this bridge enroute Bagdogra to Phunetsholing. This bridge was constructed by Britishers and must be one of the oldest bridge of the region. You can have a nice scenic view of Teesta River and the Sevoke forest from here. One can spend 20-30 minutes here.
  • Amazing place to visit with great views. It also had a great history. It's also good place to bring ones family.
  • It's a nice place on the River Teesta. Just 1hr from Siliguri. I love this place so much
  • Have been going there since my teens..... Probably the first romantic place for any Siligurian..!!
