NAMDANG STONE BRIDGE

The Namdang Stone Bridge is 60 meter in length, 6 meters in width and 1.7 meters in height. King Rudra Singha called the architect of the bridge from Cooch Behar. Historian Edward Gait mentioned the architect as Ghanashyamuddin. The bridge is little curved in shape, so that the load distributes to the edges of the bridge, a arch bridge design. This increases the load capacity of the bridge many times. The stone for the bridge were quarried from nearby Naga hills, a place called Silakuti (Xilakuti). The floor of the bridge is made of just single rock nicely and perfectly curved. Arches are built from slabs of rocks joined with stone nails and masonry. The mortar for the masonry work was made of Bora rice, Duck eggs, Rice chaff, lime and Black lentil.
