One of the oldest bridge, worth visiting and admiring for every visitor, excellent view, pretty long bridge, and interestingly it can fold also for the ships to pass by.

Great and nice architecture piece of Engineering. The bridge is very good and very long. Various vehicles are passing on this bridge that’s why there maybe traffic. Must see if you are in Kolkata

We hired a taxi and went from one corner of the bridge to another. It was hell busy. Visit is a must to see the engineering talent involved in the designing of the bridge andso it's a major attraction of Kolkata.

We were moving from Dakshineswar Kali Maara temple to Millennium park and chose to take the stamer as transportation. And there comes to sight after 20 mins the mighty Howrah bridge. Strong of steel looks really mighty when you are beneath it !
