“The best hanging bridge in the world”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

I have been to Howrah Bridge many times, and every time, I get excited and watch it with awe. Imagine, there’s not a pillar in the middle, and the bridge is so long. I am not sure, what is the exact length, but it should be around 600-700 meters. It’s hanging. It goes to show what amazing civil engineering idea has been used by the Britishers to construct this bridge. And it is also very broad.
