The Old Thoppumpady bridge, Kochi, Kerala

The bridge you see in the photo is an old structure in Kochi connecting Mattancherry and Wellington island, built by British during the pre independence period. This structure is an engineering marvel. The center of the bridge can be raised to allow small ships to pass by. A parallel bridge is constructed for connecting both islands.and only 2 wheelers are allowed to ply on this old bridge these days. The bridge has lot of stories to tell and it makes me nostalgic as I had to cross this bridge everyday to reach my college.
Picture was shot from the new bridge.
