Demodara Nine Arch Bridge, Ella

4.4
A major crossing point along the nation's main rail artery, Demodara Nine Arch Bridge stands as a marvel of the region's colonial-era engineering. Completed in 1921, the bridge features nine successive arched spans stretching 91.5 m (300 ft) across a small valley. Standing at a height of 24 m (80 ft), the structure features no steel or metal in its construction--only bricks, cement, and rocks. You can make your way to the bridge from the nearby town of Ella via a jungle trail, at the end of which you'll have a clear view of this landmark structure. Alternatively, ride the train between the two stations on either side of the bridge for fine views and a chance to travel like the local population. With our world travel planner, Ella attractions like Demodara Nine Arch Bridge can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We came in the early morning. It is a 15-minute walk through the forest with little unevenness (yes, with a lot of moisture) and without mosquitoes. Once there you see the bridge in its splendor. We saw the passing train at 09:20.
