About Pamban Bridge In Rameshwaram

The Pamban Bridge a massive structure over the Indian Ocean and the first sea as well as cantilever bridge constructed in India. Built as a part of South Indian Railway project, this bridge is an engineering marvel and was completed in 1911. The bridge connects Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India.

With 143 piers, spanning 2 km between the mainland and the island, it is the second longest sea bridge in India after the Bandra-Worli sea link on Mumbai's western coast. Pamban Bridge in Rameshwaram is arch-shaped and built on artificial sandstone.

Pamban Bridge opening for ships makes it all the more alluring. A German engineer Scherzer designed the central part of this bridge that opens for the ships and boats to cross under the bridge.

Opened on 24th February, 1914, Rameshwaram Pamban Bridge is believed to have built on a sacred spot – Pamban. Here Lord Rama is said to have shot an arrow to the ground for a spring to emerge so that Goddess Sita could quench her thirst.  

Pamban Bridge story is a poignant one. According to the legends, a man sacrificed his only son to save thousands of people traveling in a train passing through the bridge.

Pamban bridge length is 2.3 km (road bridge) and 2.6 km (rail bridge). The Pamban road bridge is also known as Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge. Pamban Railway Bridge is also considered to be the longest rail bridge. This railway bridge has been upgraded to carry broad gauge trains by Indian Railways in 2007.

Visitors will also get a chance to view the sea in its grand form, unlike any other place in the city. They can choose to travel either on road or by train and both ways, the views are superbly fantastic.

    What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet. The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. This was the first time I made my booking through Travel Triangle and BookItForgetIt and I had a great and lifetime experience. Everything was smoo
    th and as per the plan. My trip was planned by Sahil and he was very professional and polite and was in touch throughout the journey. I have recommended his name to my friends and family for the upcoming travel plans. I would highly recommend his name for any trip plans. On special request, Driver was very professional, well trained, outstanding - passionate, informative, engaging and entertaining. He had a great knowledge of near by places/site scenes and mouth watering restaurants. Also, the stay in resort (booked as per my choice) was comfortable and beyond the expectations. Special Thanks to Sahil who carefully guided me for this trip especially at the Covid time when most of the spots was locked down. Thanks Travel Triangle for the wonderful experience. Keep up the good work and make your customer happy. Will catch you soon! Thanks again! – Arpit What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet.
