  • The views are spectacular and there is a fine restaurant at one end of the Bridge, where you can park and walk over to have a look at the damn.  more »
  • The bridge has very good view of the river. I was with my friend on motor bike and hence we didn't spend much time here unless doing any activity.  more »
