broken bridge

Pic coutrsey prabhu karthick

This is a picture taken from the broken bridge in adyar, it earlier would connect the adyar with foreshore estate, across the adyar river. This particular bridge has featured in many tamil movies like Vaali and Ayutha Ezhathu, the ones I’ve noticed the bridge, there are innumerable movies which have been shot on the bridge.

During a season of heavy rains, a portion of the bridge was washed away, what stands today ends abruptly at the in the middle of the adyar river.

This is one place in Chennai which I enjoy visiting, and frequently visit. Walking up the bridge, sitting at the edge, where it ends abruptly over the Adyar River, enjoying the cool breeze, while standing at the edge, or sitting along the beach just looking into the waves while sitting on the beach sand.

    Hi Vatsa,

    Love this place.

    As part of our rowing practice, we would row from the Madras Boat Club to this broken bridge.

    But how does one get to the bridge from road? Can you tell me the direction how to get there?

    Hello Kiruba,

    u can go to the broken beach via the besant nagar beach kuppam. But it is not advisable to go there after dark, as i unfortunately found out.
