Mathur Aqueduct-Nature at its Best
The Mathur Aqueduct is a slice of nature at its best. Built over the Pahreli River, it stands with grandeur as the longest water bridge in Asia, carrying water between two villages. It is a popular tourist attraction luring travellers with its fresh air and tranquil atmosphere.
The breath taking view of the lush scenery from the top of the bridge will leave you mesmerised. Known as the Hanging Trough Bridge, it has 28 pillars of 115 feet and is the tallest trough in Asia. It now stands for the purpose of irrigation and drought relief measure. A stroll on the bridge gives you a stunning view of the surroundings. Kids can amuse themselves in the newly opened park while you can savour pineapples and tender coconuts in this serene location. The aqueduct is an ideal relaxation spot with your loved ones in Kanyakumari.
