The broken bridge across the Adyar estuary was built in the 1960 s for fishermen to cross from the Foreshore Estate to the Besant Nagar side. It had a very short life as a utility when in 1977 high tide (or was it high current from the river?) washed away part of the bridge. It has never been rebuilt after that.
Today, it is a haunt for bachelors and photo enthusiasts. A few movie episodes have been shot here. However, many are afraid to venture out alone here because of a perceived danger from anti-social elements.
I was happy to have a grandstand view from a 7th-floor room in Leela Palace Hotel. As the windows were sealed, I had to take this through the glass and tweak a little on LR.
