Overview
This is another interesting place you can visit from Polonnaruwa. This ancient iron bridge runs over the Mahaveli River which runs about 50 feet below. But during the rain reason the water of this river even flows over the bridge.
This is a fairly long but a narrow bridge. There is no room for two vehicles to pass, so any vehicle crossing the bridge have to wait till all the traffic passes on the opposite direction. But the most significance feature of this bridge is the railway track running right on the centre of the road. So if you are unlucky enough, this is one of the very few places where your vehicle can come face to face with a train. The bridge is manned by the Sri Lankan Army and two Army checkpoints on both sides control both rail and motor vehicle traffic.
