  • It is very romantic in evening. High on breeze. Please visit ferry ghats nearby to get full enjoyment. Pick nice seating available. Go in winter or spring. Very nice time of year. 
  • This is one famous bridge in Calcutta built by the British empire still strong and charming. It has a real flavor of Kolkata in it. A taxi Ride through this bridge is a great experience

  • Most iconic bridge in india. It is the heritage of kolkata. The illuminated view of bridge at night is something which can't be described in words. Only one word for the bridge AWESOME..Must visit site for anyone coming to kolkata
  • Howrah Bridge is the symbolic landmark of Kolkata. It connects Howrah with Kolkata. Its grandeur and design is sure to catch one's attention. Being a cantilever beam in design, its also called "Hanging Bridge". The Ganges beneath looks magnificent, especially during early morning and in the evening.
  • Howrah Bridge is in the blood of every Kolkatan. People of bengal are known by it and live through it. It is a history which repeats itself everyday. It is a marvel. You'll be amazed to see and wonder about the hard work behind this glorious piece engineered by the Britishers. Here are some things which will make you ponder over the wonder. -26500 metric tons of steel. Almost 2.6 times more of the total weight of Eiffel Tower. -Its a bridge which does not have a support in middle and only has support at the two ends. Extreme engineering of a suspension bridge. -World's busiest cantilever suspension bridge with a daily traffic of over 100000 vehicles and 400000 pedestrians. -It is currently 6th longest bridge of its type in the world. -It has no nuts and bolts. Has just rivets. Heated, hammered and cooled to fit. I have crossed this bridge a zillion times and still I never get tired to amaze myself of thinking about the immense hard work and vision behind this architecture. Its a must visit. You must walk through it to look at the history. Highly recommended. Pure amaze.
  • It's based on propped Cantilever beam. One of the heritage of Kolkata. It connects Howrah to Kolkata. Also called Rabindra Setu.
