The Howrah bridge is probably the most shot ( movie) location . It is not only an iconic landmark but also a very important link between kolkata and Howrah the house of the oldest main railway station . The Ganga flowing beneath is called Hooghly and is treat to watch. The bridge is always bustling with people rushing to catch a journey yet it stands amidst the glory silently saying thanks for visiting .

We visited the Howrah Bridge in February 2018. Quite an extraordinary bridge to see, and very busy! We drove over the bridge a number of times and viewed it from the rivers edge, as there were several sights to see as you cross over it. I recommend viewing the bridge from several vantage points to get the best overall experience.

Having seen so many photos of it, the civil engineer in me was truly delighted to see the bridge up close. The design of the bridge is marvelous and really gives clarity on how a cantilever bridge works.

Best time to visit at Evening when the bridge lights are on . Take a ferry ride from Howrah towards Bagbazar/SovaBazar/Arihitola. It will go under the bridge. You will enjoy the beauty of the bridge from the river Ganga.
