    The backdrop is stunning. Surrounded by mountains on one side the bridge connects South Guwahati to the North, the main city area. But the railings spoil the views completely  more »

    The bridge gives you a beautiful view of Brahamputra River and the lush green trees around. A good spot to click few pics. But nothing much to do.  more »

    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.

    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

Where to stay in Guwahati

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district. 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. Look to the mazy side streets of the Paltan Bazaar district for some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The main Guwahati-Shillong Road has a good choice of hotels, with some budget and luxury options available. The road offers a degree of convenience for those who want to get out and explore the hillier areas of the region.
