Here, you'll find some particularly refined options next to the river in the Fancy Bazaar area, offering extensive views of the water and access to some of the main sights in town.

  • Beautiful architecture. A double decked bridge with road on top and railway on lower deck. The brahmaputra looks beautiful from the bridge
  • Beautiful bridge at the gateway of Guwahati and since long a tourist attraction place. The 1.4 km long rail cum road 1st bridge across Brahmaputra river recently completed 50 years. The name 'Saraighat' is historical and symbolic to Assam history. Off recently many suicide cases reported from this bridge.
  • Very mesmerising. Visit it in a spring morning. There is a surprising scenerio for you
  • Nice bridge. A good Construction. A beautiful view of Bramhaputra River . Also a place for photographer to click photos.
  • Inaugrated in 1960s , this bridge connecting North Guwahati with main Guwahati city is still standing strong. It's said , then PM, Shri J.L.Nehru inaugrated the bridge and the same Sarai ghat is derived from the famous battle of Sarai ghat 1671 that was fought between Mughal and the Akhom Kingdom
