Harimaya Bridge, Kochi

(1/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Past the intersection of main street and away. A little sparingly. Nice leisurely stroll next to this park, so on a sunny day! ~

  • Wariduka, hashime-a "quite" disappointed and go. Old origin of the bridge and see the signs as-at least what I think, but why put the bridge just for this is a mystery. I'd better stop while you're exploring the city by city, so much.

  • Not seen on the bridge at all over from the old mystery (lol) or why it tried to tourist attractions and a short bridge before it in 5 seconds... see. City tour of this bridge just to go around to see what it means no!
