Padgampore Bridge




Padgampore Bridge is an ancient overpass located at Avantipur in Pulwama District of Jammu and Kashmir. It is about 29 km from Srinagar on the way to Anantnag. The bridge was constructed by Haider Shah (A D 1472-73). This overpass was gutted in a fire during the Chak rule and was rebuilt by Pratap Singh in 1921.

Padgampore Bridge is a wooden one and is now in bad shape, due to its age and neglect.
