A Heritage Bridge

The bridge across the Cooum river connecting Mount Road neat The Hindu office and Island’s grounds was originally built in 1750 CE by the British and rebuilt / repaired several times. This 11- arch brick masonry bridge was known under various names – St. Georges Bridge, Willingdon Bridge and now, Periyar Bridge.

The MRTS (Mass Rapid Transit System) rail line passes neat the bridge.

Election Noose?

Noose for the citizens?
More noose?

Casuarina log barricades have been put up carelessly around the polling booth in Indira Nagar (Hindu School) with ropes hanging like a noose. Could be dangerous for two-wheeler riders and pedestrians.

Bus Shelter or Cow Shelter?

Neither. This is the shelter for police personnel of the Election Commission as they check vehicles.
