About Broken Bridge, Chennai

The Broken Bridge is one place that is resorted to by locals for a respite, yet not as conventional as the mainstream attractions. In fact, some might even question the appeal of this place, given that this is where all the city drains meet the Bay of Bengal. The bridge is essentially named so given the fact that the bridge particularly lead to nowhere! But it is said that the bridge was constructed so as to help fisherman cross the river Adyar from Santhome beach to Elliot's beach. In recent times, the bridge is a popular shoot location for several regional films, along with being a hotspot for youngsters for leisure.

The fisherman believe that the bridge is haunted, while some have witnessed illegal deals happening here too.

Broken Bridge, Chennai Reviews

  • It's a 1.5 km walk from Bessy beach. The route to this place is kind of through a slum. Totally safe during the day time. Just that in the mornings people defecate in the open. You can reach by walking through the beach too. Has a view of the hotel Leela palace. Surrounded by a lake. Maybe good for taking photographs. One time visit.

  • It's supposedly one of the most haunted places in Chennai. But to get at least a pinch of the so called haunted have to go at night. It's a really good place to chill at night,the place being isolated ...despite police patrols. Getting there is kind of adventurous , because of the nosy locals nearby. And there dogs. And their livestock.'s a good place to be at night with your loved ones.

  • Nice place to taken photos but u can't access the bridge easily . Because there's no stairs. Earlier soil is near the height of bridge.(old photos attached) Now soil is eroded by water.Now you need to jump 4 meter without any support. Better to avoid the place bcoz surrounding also not good.

  • Perfect place for an evening getaway!!Get to witness the adyar river meet the bay of bengal...A sight worth watching....The downside the bridge is too dangerous to climb.Plan accordingly if u intent to get over the bridge. But usually by 6 pm the police clears off the area so its better to visit the place before 6. Plus u can also enjoy the beach😉

  • Good photographic view. Calm and Cool atmosphere. The wind and atmosphere here helps to relax from stress.
