Coronation Bridge, Darjeeling

4.1
Traverse the cleverly engineered span of Coronation Bridge, a striking white and raspberry-red reinforced concrete structure. Supported by a single arch, the bridge crosses the Teesta River and connects the districts of Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling. Commissioned to commemorate the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1937, it was completed in 1941, and affords sweeping views of the verdant valley and river below. Note the two lion statues at one entrance. Arrange your visit to Coronation Bridge and discover more family-friendly attractions in Darjeeling using our Darjeeling trip builder tool .

  • This is an old road bridge which comes while going from Siliguri to Gangtok. The view of the Tista River from this bridge is amazing. We spent 15 minutes here. Sevokeshwari Kali Temple is also near...  more »
  • This bridge is the link to Sikkim and North East. Built on the Teesta by the British, it is an engineering marvel. The view of the surroundings from this bridge is excellent.  more »

  • The monkeys will ruin it for you. If you get off here and try to pass some time walking on the bridge and just stand there admiring the beauty, the monkey will get to you. They are so aggressive that you have to be extremely careful admiring the natural beauty that is magnificent. Parking is not available.nice place . this place to gangtok distance 92 k.m. and time spend 2-3 hour have a safe journey everyone.
