Harimaya Bridge, Kochi
(1/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Known as a source of inspiration for artists and lovers alike, Harimaya Bridge features in numerous hit songs and movies. This 20 m (65 ft) red arched bridge stands side by side with the surrounding department stores in the heart of the city. Torn down and rebuilt many times throughout history, the tiny bridge is the setting of an old local folk song, in which a Buddhist priest buys a hairpin for his sweetheart. Look for the monument to this song at the foot of the bridge, which draws scores of tourists. Make Harimaya Bridge a part of your Kochi vacation plans using our Kochi itinerary planner.

  • Was a little bit disappointing so I imagine the larger bridge is very small downtown, not the big intersection so access is good but inconspicuous.

  • Is a beautiful bridge, was not so much to hear and understand, but it is. They lit up the night I went, was beautiful. This is a great place to take pictures.

  • 顏色鮮艷的橋 背後故事淒美 不過附近有一家不錯的和菓子店 和商店街 有時有小販帶著小驢在販賣小食 若順路,可加在行程裡 。不然,可以不去。
