  • Excellent bridge, only one of it's kind. Masterwork of engineering. It's huge and giant. One must walk on this bridge to witness the great work. Looking so beautiful and marvellous for far distance. It's truly pride of West Bengal and India
  • This bridge levitate in air and one of the best example of engineering. Imagine so much old bridge but today also look in nice condition but the main problems is that people split pan on the bridge which reduces beauty of bridge and there is so much stain of pan you will find on bridge so I request you people if you see anyone doing this stop them please because this is our heritage and we are responsible for it. Government work is to look out the bridge renovation

  • Always and amazing experience while crossing by. The bridge offers serene view while you take in fresh breath of air every time one passes by. No matter you cross the bridge early morning or at night it's always a memorable experience. Do visit it !
  • although you are allowed to take photographs at bridge. if you're doing, do at your own risk, because you can get caught by traffic police. structure is still intact and stand firmly. iconic place to go. you can walk from one side to other on wide pedestrian path.
