Howrah bridge is one among the oldest brigades in India and its known for its single beam structure. One can take a fairy ride from here to travel to different ghats and the best time is evening and it's very cheap also. Railway station and even bus stand also is few steps away from here means an easy access to diff parts of city and County
Excellent bridge to look and photograph. Best time to visit is around sundown or after that. The bridge looks excellent after its lit up with lights and vehicles moving along! Beautiful!
