Bridge Documentation

This Buddhist temple is home to a small canal with three essentially identical cast iron arch footbridges, all in a row over the same small canal that runs through the grounds. Only the plaques mounted at mid-span of the bridges vary between each bridge. These richly ornamented bridges compliment the setting as the temple itself is quite breathtaking as well. The bridges are extremely rare examples of cast iron bridges in this part of the world.

The builder of these bridges, Larini Nathan and Company of Milan, Italy specializes in a variety of products including roofs and beams, bridge construction, mechanical engineering, the design of power plants for drinking water supplies and hydraulic power transmission, and trade in steel components for railways and tramways.

Length given is an extremely rough estimates.
