It is the oldest of the 3 bridges that connect the twin cities of Kolkata and Howrah. It is the biggest suspension bridge also.

Recently visited this land mark bridge. Was told by our guide that four to five million people cross this bridge daily. Went to the flower market at the site of the bridge. One has to visit this market to get a feel this beehive of activity. Mounds and mounds of colorful flowers everywhere. Dozens of tiny shops huddled together. Men... More

I saw this bridge and the other, Vidyasaga 2, from the Bridge, Floatel's restaurant on the river. I would bet that it is even more inspiring at night.

Howrah bridge looms large over the Hoogley river at Kolkata. It's an imposing structure, a cantilever suspension bridge which has NO nuts and bolts. It is held together by rivets. It connects Howrah with Kolkata and it's an extremely busy place. In fact it is said to be the busiest cantilever bridge in the world. It's not very long, about... More

Howrah Bridge also known as Rabindra Setu was made around British Times in 1943. Over the years while some minor maintainence were carried out, the cantilever Bridge still stands strong & Free (unlike Hooghly Setu which has a Toll). Connects Howrah & Kolkata Mainland
