About Ellis Bridge, Ahmedabad
Located alongside the Sabarmati river, the bridge has a long history that apparently dates back to the time of the Colonial rule. The place is today a hustling hotpot for natives who come here to bask in the scenery that surrounds the place. It is, in fact, the first area that was developed outside the walled area of the city. The bridge is quite popular for its structure which was built using the latest technology of that time and is known for being a sturdy specimen of engineering. Another of its importance is its area, which is quite close to many other important attractions like Law garden and the maze of the residential settlement. Being the oldest bridge in the city, the place has a great historical significance and is best visited during kite festivals when the scenery of kites donning the blues of the sky is best seen from here.

Ellis Bridge, Ahmedabad Reviews
This iconic structure of British Period, the whole bridge is made up of steel with beautiful arcs in full length. Later a new bridge is built on the both side of the old structure which is easily accessible for visitors. This bridge is part of the heritage of Ahmedabad city and is conserved by ASI.
A heritage bridge in the heart💓 of Ahmedabad city over the River Sabarmati. A British architectured bridge is one of the finest construction by the British government constructed before the Independence era. Total structure was made by steel sections. State government had constructed two way additional bridges both sides to the Ellis bridge and renamed it as "Swami Vivekananda Bridge".
AMC is not maintaining the older bridge. It is a heritage bridge built in Britisher era. I hope AMC will not demolish this bridge saying not enough funding.
World Heritage Site.. Oldest bridge on Sabarmati River.
