Why to visit Howrah Bridge
Howrah Bridge is a historic suspension bridge in Kolkata, West Bengal, approximately 6 kilometres from Kolkata Railway Station. It is also known as Rabindra Setu and is one of the world's longest cantilever bridges. It is a famous landmark in Kolkata.
The Howrah Bridge is also regarded as the busiest cantilever bridge in the world. It carries about 100,000 automobiles and numerous people on a daily basis. The richness of the bridge, on the other hand, comes alive at night when it is illuminated. To say the least, the view of the city from the ferry, especially at night, is priceless.
Expect to queue and gaze at this marvel for quite some time, as it is fairly busy most of the day. But don't miss the bridge at night, when it's lit up with millions of tiny lights, like a glistening piece of jewellery.
