Howrah Bridge….a Heritage

Howrah Bridge• a Heritage

Howrah Bridge is a bridge with a suspended span over the Hooghly River in West Bengal, India,commissioned in 1943.

The bridge was originally named the “NEW HOWRAH BRIDGE”, because it replaced a “PONTOON BRIDGE” at the same location linking the two cities of “Howrah”and “Kolkata”(Calcutta). On 14 June 1965 it was renamed “RABINDRA SETU”after the great Bengali poet “Rabindranath Tagore”, who was the first Indian and Asian Nobel laureate.

It’s a real heritage of Kolkata “The City of Joy” for which every Tourist who so ever comes here definitely visit this Bridge for its uniqueness.

I took this snap from “Jagannath Ghat” on the bank’s of Hooghly river in Posta area (Kolkata) early in the morning while a lot of Hindu Devotees were paying #HolyDip in the Ganga.

The outstanding looks of this visual extravaganza makes me feel crazy every time I cross the Bridge being an Architectural heritage of World repute.

Gear:NIKON D7200 with Tokina 11-20 wide angle lens accessory.

Dedicated to all Street Photography lovers.
