About Howrah bridge 


A balanced cantilever bridge, the Howrah Bridge was commissioned in 1934 to be built over the Hooghly River. The bridge was initially called the New Howrah Bridge, succeeding the original pontoon bridge that existed in the 1800s.


On June 14, 1965, the bridge was renamed Rabindra Setu after the great Bengali poet-novelist Rabindranath Tagore, the first Indian as well as the first Asian to ever win the Nobel prize.
