about saraighat bridge

The Saraighat Bridge is a the reason why Guwahati is said to be the Gateway to the Northeast. The bridge was built with a view to connect the Northeastern region with rest of India. It was the first bridge built over the river Brahmaputra that has completed 50 years in the year 2008. It has a length of 1,492 m (4,895 ft) and ranks among the longest bridges above water in India. The bridge was inaugurated by the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru in the year 1963. It is a majestic road cum rail bridge that is today maintained by the Northeast Frontier (NF) Railway. 

The view of the unfathomable Brahmaputra from the Saraighat Bridge is quite breathtaking. Stand in between the bridge and look at the river flowing and you will never be able to erase this sight from your mind. Besides if you are interested in Photography, don't forget to carry your camera because you can have some of the best shoots of your life here. Dawn and dusk is the best time to be here.
