Built by the British in the 1920s this was/is an incredible work on a huge scale linking Cochin city with the other side of town. Initially built as a defense.

Amazing reclaimed island. We stayed on one of the two hotels on the Island. The best way to travel was by the ferry. Well worth a try and only 4 rupees each.
