NINE ARCH BRIDGE

Location


What you can do

Located between Ella and Demodara railway stations, the nine-arch bridge is one of the most iconic bridges in Sri Lanka. This 99 feet high massive bridge has been built entirely of solid rocks, bricks, and cement without using a single piece of steel. When one stands underneath it and looks up there is a beautiful sight of ‘nine skies’ through the nine arches, hence it is also called as “Nine skies bridge” and “The Bridge in the sky”. Guards allow you to walk along the rails and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding environment. You will be so lucky if you get a chance to see a train traveling over the bridge. Taking a TukTuk ride to this wonderful place is one of the sightseeing activities that a tourist will rarely skip in Ella.
