17-8-2007: Landmark Bridges of India Miniature sheet


India has already built many modern Landmark bridges. A bridge is a structure built over barriers. The Indian Postal Department issued a set of four Landmark Bridges of India miniature sheets on this occasion. Howrah Bridge is a 705-meter-long cantilever bridge over the Hooghly River. This bridge connects Kolkata and Howrah, the two largest cities of West Bengal. Howrah Bridge was opened for traffic in 1943 and then renamed Rabindra Setu in 1965. The Pamban Bridge is a railway bridge that opened in 1914. The Pamban Bridge connects the city of Mandapam in the state of Tamil Nadu to Pamban Island. The Pamban Bridge has withstood many storms and resulted in many works.
