4.6/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • It's 2.5 km seabridge lies between mandapam &pamban in tamilnadu .railway bridge is near to the bridge 
  • An engineering marvel this long bridge connecting the island with the main land. Nice colour breeze, sea on both sides enjoyed the drive but for some haphazard parking by tourists vehicles. 
  • The bridge provides the access to the island of Rameshwaram. A good view from the middle of the rail bridge and the bay of bengal.
