This bridge is on one hand a railway bridge and on the other a road bridge which was sconstructed in the year 1914. This is however more of the Cantilever Railway Bridge which was the first one of its kind in India and was also the longest till the time the Bandra- Worli Sea link was constructed in Maharashtra. The Pamban Bridge is on the Palk Strait and connects Rameshwaram on the Pamban Island to the main subcontinent of India. This is also a prime tourist attraction since the people going and coming back from Rameshwaram have to pass this to enter Kanyakumari. This is a typical commercial bridge however there is also space for ships band barges to pass through.

#Mykindacity Pamban Bridge is a railway bridge which connects the town of Rameswaram on Pamban Island. It was inaugurated by former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on 2 October 1988. This 2.345 km long Bridge took close to 14 years to be completed.
The bridge came with a moment I have never ever wondered of; in my entire life! “ Oh my god”, “How I can be so lucky to see this”, “Is this real”, “How something can look like this" were a few statements that popped out of my mouth the moment I saw it. Blue never ending sea was just few meter away from my foot. I just can’t explain what my eyes witnessed, although I clicked a number of photographs. The scintillating combination of colors soothing my mind, taking away all the fatigue of this trip! Heavens know what I felt. I have visited more than 16-17 states but trust me I never encountered anything like this. I can fly back to Tamilnadu, just to see this bridge.
There is something magical around this place. It has to be the blueish green shade of the sea, the fresh air, the Sangam (meeting point of ocean and sea). It is much more than what I could describe. The last time I was there, I had a scintillating experience. I was there for a very short time, and hence vowed to return.
It won't fair to move for some other expedition without a stop on famous "Pamban Bridge" that connects the holy island to the mainland of India. Luckily we had the chance to see a train crossing the sea on 104 year old bridge.
So according to our plan we woke up early, boarded the train and after 3 hours the train was running on the Pamban Bridge and as far as your eyes can see you will only find blue and clear water. Rameswaram; a city that narrates the great tale of Ramayana with its culture and architecture.
Rameshwaram, a town in the state of Tamil Nadu, is located on the Pamban island situated in the Gulf of Mannar at the tip of the Indian peninsula and is connected to the mainland India by the Pamban Bridge. The Pamban Bridge is a railway bridge, opened in the year 1914, was India's first sea bridge. A road bridge was constructed parallel to the Pamban Bridge known as Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge.
The view from Pamban bridge from road bridge is awesome, tourist stop there Bike, car and even Bus to enjoy the view and you can feel the how bridge is breathing literally its Hanging bridge I would say. My luck its huge traffic created by the tourist bus stopped to enjoy the view and top of that started raining heavily. I didn't had any riding pants and trouser get full wet and my new shoe was completely drenched in the water. Now I don't have any other option that ride in wet trouser and watered logged Boot. Rameswaram to Dhanuskodi road once you come of out of city chaos its smooth and heavy windy and as dhanuskodi is one of largest touristic location they were expanding the road building barricade in both side of the road.
The views from Pamban Bridge are unlike any place in India. The crystal clear waters of the ocean are the quintessence of blue.
The Pamban Bridge ( Tamil: பாம்பன் பாலம்), is a cantilever bridge on the Palk Strait which connects the town ofRameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India. The bridge refers to both the road bridge and the cantilever railway bridge, though primarily it means the latter. Opened on 24 February 1914, it was India's first sea bridge, and was the longest sea bridge in India until the opening of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link in 2010. The rail bridge is for the most part, a conventional bridge resting on concrete piers, but has a double leaf bascule section midway, which can be raised to let ships and barges pass through.
Opened in 1914, it was India's first sea bridge, and was the longest sea bridge in India till 2010. The bridge connects to the Pamban island. The blue water all around bridge is just spectacular.
