Everyday millions of people use this bridge and I am one of them. The best cantilever bridge in India. Although the bridge is highly congested but beautiful. You can walk across the bridge and feel the beauty of Ganges river.

Must see in the city of Kolkata. This bridge over the holy Ganges is a sight to watch. Is well maintained and gives a feel of the British era.

This bridge connects Howrah to Kolkata. It is an old bridge which I have seen in many movies. I saw this bridge while going from Howrah junction to my hotel in Kolkata.

Standing Tall and in service for more than 74 years, this is a must see bridge. The strength of the bridge comes from the tons of metal that is seen on the bridge. It is a delightful sight & gives you a sense of pride when ever travelling on this bridge.

Definitely worth a walk over this bridge, cross over and walk back the other side. The flower market on the Kolkata side is amazing. I stayed at the Lalit and it took me approximately 25 minutes to walk there, perfectly safe and you pass through some very interesting areas.
