Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge, Rameswaram

(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Also known as Pamban Bridge, Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge was India's first sea bridge, built in the early 1900s with a double-leaf bascule section that raises to allow passage of ships. The bridge connects the town of Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India and consists of both a road bridge and a railway bridge. You can walk and jog across the bridge, or you can catch a train instead for the opportunity to take fantastic photos of the bridge contrasting against the blue sea.

  • Excellent view of the sea , can't explain in few words, you would like to visit to again and again,
  • For Business Charters you can prefer Helitours India . Minimum charge is 85 k / Hour.
  • Excellent view of the sea and Rameswram from top of the bridge. Blue clear water with fishing boats provides a very beautiful picture
