Nawa Kadal is one of the nine bridges placed over the Jhelum River
. 'Kadal' is a Kashmiri word which means bridge.
It is the sixth wooden bridge in the city. This bridge was constructed in a special way with the projecting horizontal beam fixed at one end only. Due to the decrepit condition of the old bridge, it has now been replaced by a newly constructed bridge.
Safa Kadal is nearby.
