Descripción:Vikramshila Setu or Bridge is built over a length of 4.7 kms (or 47000 m) on the River Ganges between the National highways 80 and 31. This bridge acts as a link between the cities of Barari Ghat and Naugauchia in the State of Bihar, India. It was observed that travel across these cities was hampered due to floods in River Ganges during rainy season, hence the Bridge was constructed. Without this bridge, the travelers had to take a roundabout route to reach Barari Ghat from Naugauchia. This bridge assumes importance not only because it is the second largest bridge in North India (first being the Mahatma Gandhi Setu) but also for the rare species of Dolphins in the Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary. The name of the bridge is derived from the famous educational institution built by King Dharmapala by the name Vikramshila.
Vikramshila Setu (Hindi: विक्रमशिला सेतु) is a bridge across the Ganges, near Bhagalpur in the Indian state of Bihar named after Vikramaśīla University which was established by King Dharmapala (783 to 820 A.D.) .
Vikramshila Setu is 3rd longest bridge in India and 118 rank in world longest bridge in world The 4.7 km long bridge serves as a link between NH 80 and NH 31 running on the opposite sides of the Ganges. It runs from Barari Ghat on the Bhagalpur side on the south bank of the Ganges to Naugachia on the north bank. Its also connect Bhagalpur to Purnia and kathiar This has reduced considerably the road travel distance between Bhagalpur and places across the Ganges.
